It’s been a while since I did some baking last and even longer since I made a cake like this one. It’s full of things I don’t normally use to make cakes; butter, eggs and white sugar.
I’ve always loved rice cake though, its a really simple cake and it’s a bit basic. You don’t often find it in cookbooks anymore I guess it’s fallen out of favour, modern cakes would probably use ground almonds or other types of nut. If you’ve never had rice cake in the ground rice gives a really dense texture and due to the amount of butter it’s got a really creamy buttery flavour.
