Yet another way to get your rice and beans
I made these cupcakes for my CHIM (Chinese Herbs and Internal Medicine) class last Thursday night. (Azuki beans, or chi xiao dou, are used medicinally in Chinese herbal formulas.) The only thing I changed was sprinkling the tops with black sesame seeds (hei zhi ma, also a medicinal herb!) instead of poppy seeds. They were super-easy, and so delicious--got lots of requests for the recipe following our presentation.
