Weekend Cooking: Rice Cookies
January 16, 2011 26 Comments
Weekend Cooking is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book (novel, nonfiction) reviews, cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, fabulous quotations, photographs. It is hosted by Beth Fish Reads.
I’ve never made them before but I knew they “existed”, so I looked up the recipe and found one (in Dutch) on smulweb.nl. I would almost call them small pancakes. But whatever they’re called, they are very nice, especially with a drizzle of golden syrup on top. Here’s the recipe:
50 grams of raisins
200 grams cooked rice
2-3 tablespoons of milk
2 eggs (beaten lightly)
50 grams of plain flour
2 tablespoons white caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
4 tabelspoons sun flower oil
golden syrup or powder sugar
Let the raisins soak for about 2-3 minutes in hot water and pat them dry with a clean tea towel.
Mix the rice with the milk, eggs, raisins, flour, sugar and cinnamon powder.
Heat a tablespoon full of oil in a frying pan and spoon three heaps of the rice mix into the pan.
Bake the cookies for about 5-7 minutes until they are golden brown, turning them over once. My pan is rather large and I was able to bake them in fours.
Eat as they are or drip some syrup on them or add some powdered sugar before eating.
This is also my entry for the Whip Up Something New Challenge in which we are asked to try a recipe that we have not made before.
