This recipe was an experimenting field for us.
I did not get brown rice flour and I'm really sorry for that.
I tried with sweet (glutinous) rice flour first. They turned out super yummy, jelly like (as I was using the same flour as for Japanese mochi), but really not what I supposed to get. See photo in the garden on grass.
The second time I tried out with conventional wheat flour. Also these turned out super yummy and this time fluffy as supposed. We enjoyed these with #456836.
My children could not decide which the best are. :wink:
In this case a double thanks for the delicious spice combination and for offering us this recipe.
Note: I used 12 medium sized muffins silcon molds as this are the biggest I have.
