recipe: steamed rice cakes

Next up from my lovely mother are these beautiful steamed rice cakes. These are another popular Asian dessert and I definitely remember loving (and still loving) them when I was a child. 🙂

250g rice flour
50g plain flour
120g to 150g sugar
210 ml hot water
5g instant yeast
  1. Dissolve sugar in hot water and set aside to cool down to room temperature.
  2. Mix rice flour, flour and yeast in a large mixing bowl and stir in sugar liquid. Combine and mix well.
  3. Set aside to ferment for 2-4 hours based on the temperature. It takes about 2.5 hours at room temperature.
  4. Brush the moulds with oil and scoop the liquid to fill a baking cup about 3/4 of the way. Bring the water to a boil and then steam the cakes for 20 minutes over high fire.
  5. Wait for 5 minutes, transfer out and cool down slightly. Enjoy the cakes warm!
