in light of the lunar new year

a recipe from my aunt for Nian Gao ("sticky dough"). It is a sweet dessert that is often had around this time of year in celebration.

1 package sweet rice flour (1 lb)
< 1/4 cup margarine
2-3 eggs
2 1/2 cups milk/water (2 cups milk 1/2 cup water)
1 3/4 cups brown sugar (maybe a little less)
1 tsp baking soda
red bean paste (optional)

beat it all together, pour it into a rectangular pan
bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes, slice and serve
