These "oil cakes" are common throughout China.   They are roughly-round, flat pieces of unflavored dough that are deep fried to a golden crisp.    While the name may be unappealing, these deep-fried dough pieces are especially tasty when they come hot from the fryer.  "Oil cakes" are typically eaten as Westerners eat toast and accompany a bowl of noodle soup for breakfast. dough.jpg (28407 bytes)
