“Though the name translates to “orange cake,” there’s no orange flavor in these deep-fried rice balls. Instead, these southern Vietnamese sweets are named for their visual resemblance to an orange,” CNN editors said.

Banh cam is made with tender glutinous rice flour and filled with mung bean paste. The balls are then rolled in sesame seeds and fried. It is a highly favored dessert in the southern region.

A northern parallel to this dish is the banh ran, but this variation has a sugary syrup poured over it.

Last week, it included Vietnam’s popular banh mi in a list of the world’s 23 best sandwiches.

Last month, the banh bot loc (steamed tapioca cake with shrimp), a specialty in former imperial capital Hue, featured in its list of the world’s tastiest dumplings.
