Introduction: Greatgreatgrandmothers Rice Cake

Picture of Greatgreatgrandmothers Rice Cake

My grandmother had a secret recipe for rice cake. She learned this from her grandmother. When my grandmother died, I got the old cookbook from my greatgreatgrandmother. Now it's my turn to make this cake. At first it was not easy, considering it's a very old cookbook, it dates back to the time when no electric ovens were available and temperature is difficult to regulate. So instructions in the book end with " bake the cake" without more information :)

Step 1: Ingredients

Step 2: Cook!

1. Boil the milk with the rice and vanilla. Then let it boil for 45 minuts on a low heat until the rice is ready. Stir occasionally with a wooden spoon. As the spoon remains upright, than the rice is ready.
2. remove the vanilla pod.
3. Stir the butter until cream. My grandmother did this by hand :).
4. Add the egg yolks, put the egg whites aside.
5. Add the sugar and the almond
6. Add the cooked rice.

7. Whisk egg whites.
8. Mix the egg whites with the rice.

I had hopes that it would be gluten free cake. Until I read it has bread in the bottom. What else can be used instead of bread?

You can use glutenfree cookies. It just has to be something dry like toasted bread to absorp some of the milk in from your rice. So dry cookies without chocolate or something will do fine!

It's like toasted bread, you can use that instead, it has to be very dry.

I had the same question. According to Google its a "a light, dry biscuit or piece of twice-baked bread, especially one prepared for use as baby food."
