While hot desserts are eaten year round in Taiwan, understandably, wintertime is the peak season for consumption of these sweet treats. Also called tofu pudding, douhua is a Chinese dessert made with a very soft tofu. In Taiwan, it can be served with a variety of toppings, including red beans, mung beans, and my personal favorite, tapioca balls. It also includes a sweet sugar syrup, sometimes almond or ginger. During the summer months, you will find douhua served with crushed ice while winter months call for it to be served warm.
