Explanation:
I douibt if there's an established English translation for this dish name, but if you just call it "coffin toast" and then follow up with an explanation, that might get the job done. You can find a picture of this goody at:

It's the picture at top left. If you click on the picture, you'll get a very good description in Chinese of how it's made. Since you posted Chinese characters in your question, I'll assume you can read Chinese and post the following here:
