Recipe – Rice Buns

IMG_5871My Mother did a lot of baking and she did try and vary it at times.  Rice buns are something she made not very often.  They are made from normal cake mixture with added ground rice in place of some of the flour.

They look the same as a normal bun but taste a little differently.

 

Oven 200 C   400 F  Gas Mark 6

To make 20 buns you will need:

  • 4 oz butter
  • 4 oz caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 oz Self Raising Flour
  • 3 oz ground rice (or rice flour)
  • a few drops of lemon essence
  • the juice of half a lemon (optional)

Cream the butter and sugar together until it is pale and creamy then add the eggs one at a time plus a tablespoon of flour with each egg. Add the lemon essence and lemon juice if using.  When well mixed fold in the flour and ground rice until the mixture is well combined  and put a spoonful of mixture into each bun case.

Bake in the centre of the oven for 15 minutes until firm.  You can decorate with a half cherry or some white icing or leave them plain.  Enjoy with a cup of tea. — JAB
