  • 375 g Butter
  • 330 g Rice Flour
  • 6 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract Essence will also do.
  • 360 g Sugar Fine
  • 1 tbsp Baking Powder
  • 1 pinch Salt


  • Mix the butter, vanilla extract, salt and the sugar together.
  • Add in the eggs and beat. 
  • Gently fold in the rice flour and baking powder by hand or with a spoon. Don't beat it or it will lose air.
  • Add in colour if you want to.
  • Add the batter to your pre-lined baking trays.
  • Bake for 50 minutes at 210 degrees Celsius. 
  • Serve. You don't have to wait for it to cool. It tastes yummy when warm too!
