Introduction: Flourless, Fat-free Rice Cake

Picture of Flourless, Fat-free Rice Cake

Last Friday I experimented with rice…and the result, oh the result was soft and sweet and addictive!

This rice cake has no butter, nor oil or flour so perfect if your are trying to control/lose weight but still don’t wanna totally give up on something sweet!

Ingredients
* 100 g rice
* 500 ml milk
* 60 g sugar
* 2 eggs
* 25 g butter (for greasing the pan)

Step 1: Step One - Make the Batter

Take 500 ml milk, bring it to a boil, drop in the rice. Cook till rice is soft and creamy
Meanwhile separate egg yolks from egg whites
Whip the egg whites
When the rice is ready, turn off the heat and add eggs, sugar and vanilla extract
Now slowly incorporate the whipped egg whites.

Step 2: Step Two - Bake It!

Grease a baking pan and cook at 180 C for about 40 min
Let it cool down, then cut into slices.
You can eat it for breakfast with some milk, or (if you can), add a scoop of whip cream or ice cream and enjoy your cake at home or with friends.

500 ml milk is about 2 cups
25 g butter is 2 tbsp
60 g sugar is 1/3 cup
100 g rice should be 1/2 heaping cup
Hope that helps, but u can google it and find all conversions

Sounds Delish, It's also Gluten Free, Yay. As for the butter, use a non-fat cooking spray.

it's nice thing to eat

(i'm afraid 2 egg yolks have up to 20g of fat)

I'll re-feature this...once you clear up the butter confusion!

ExpatCucina (author)Lithium Rain2010-11-17

I've added in the ingredients what the butter is for. Sorry for confusion

Lithium Rain (author)ExpatCucina2010-11-18

Great! I've given it a category-level feature - it looks delicious.

mirileh (author)2010-09-06

when do you add the butter? (25 gr is fine with me! though you might want to change the title to be exact)

ExpatCucina (author)mirileh2010-11-17

The butter is for greasing the pan

Looks good, tasty and healty. But fat free and butter as an ingredient doesn't compute in my kitchen.

ExpatCucina (author)tecneeq2010-11-17

The butter is only for greasing the pan
