Douhua (Chinese: 豆花) or dòufuhuā (Chinese: 豆腐花) is a dessert made with very silky soft tofu and commonly referred to as tofu pudding. In Taiwanese cuisine, douhua is served with sweet toppings like cooked peanuts, adzuki beans, cooked oatmeal, tapioca, mung beans, and a syrup flavored with ginger or almond. The taste is unique, as the nuts swimming in the ginger tofu give a remarkable sweetness and flavor to the dessert. During the summer, douhua is served with crushed ice; in the winter, it is served warm. This sweet dish is a real delicacy for tourists and a common thing for the locals, that is why it is sold at a very cheap price, something about 15 pence.
