After last month’s cake blog hop we were convinced there had to be another one. But the original idea seem constrained and, despite a lot of support for a baked version of paella, I wasn’t convinced.
Several million emails exchanged, we settled on a Rice Blog Hop. There is just so much one can do with rice. It is an extremely versatile grain and a source of at least a thousand variations just for dessert.
I baked a healthy cardamon tea cake using rice flour and rice bran oil. Speckled with spices, this is perfect accompaniment for your morning tea.
- 1¼ cups self-raising flour
- ½ cup rice flour
- ¼ cup wholemeal flour
- 1 tsp ground cardamom
- ¾ tsp ground cinnamon
- a pinch of salt
- 1 cup caster sugar
- 3 eggs, well beaten
- 1 cup rice bran oil
- ½ cup milk
- icing sugar to dust (optional)
- Preheat oven to 180°C.
- Lightly grease a 20cm cake tin.
- Sift together flours, cardamom, cinnamon and salt. Stir in the sugar.
- Whisk together eggs, oil and milk until combined. Spoon mixture into prepared pan.
- Bake for approximately 40-50 minutes until golden on top and cooked through.
- Turn out onto a wire rack to cool. Dust with icing sugar and serve.
And that’s not all. We’re inviting you to share with us any rice recipe you have during the next two weeks.
This event is Co-Hosted with 15 fabulous bloggers. Please go and check out their wonderful rice creations.

I like the use of rice flour…. not quite gluten free but does take some of the gluten out. Plus rice flour adds a lovely dimension. And who can go wrong with cardamom. great post. I am going to check out this blog hop thing now.

Such a beautiful cake and with rice flour yummm…..
Nice links here, but I do like your cardamon cake the best. I have made bread with cardamon, but the idea of a cake with cardamon does get my interest. Great use of rice flour. Yum!
Aww… Thanks Tina!

This does sound lovely with morning tea or coffee! I really have become a fan of cardamom, it is such a beautiful spice! Gorgeous! Love and Hugs, Terra
What a beautiful cake, I can just about taste it…with a cup of tea! I’m not familiar with rice bran oil, I’ll have to check that out.
Your cake sure is pretty, An! Oh, and cardamom! ;-)
Wow..the cake looks so pretty..spongy and lovely texture! And to think of it that it has Rice in it..beautiful An.
What a great idea to use Rice Flour for this #ricelove event ! We use Rice Flour a lot in Filipino snacks and desserts, and even entrees. It is so versatile. Great tea cake…must try this one. Thanks for sharing & as always, so much fun to bake with you, An !
Love the inventive way you used rice in your cake, it is gorgeous! Happy Baking!
Absolutely love the cake with all that cardamom, and I bet the rice flour made for a lovely light crumb. Well done!
I usually bake with canola but see a fair few people using rice bran oil these days. Is that your usual preference?
I shared my Maqloubeh — Palestinian Upside Down Rice. Very humble but traditional food :)
This is a beautiful cake! Morning tea, afternoon tea, all day long tea!
i;ve never used rice flour… and in a cake, that’s brilliant. thanks for sharing. will try out this recipe soon.
Oh wow An, love how you managed to make this month’s bloghop #ricelove and #cakelove too :D I love cardamom and would love to try a slice of this cake. Looks beautiful!
Your cardamom cake was the 1st #ricelove recipe that popped out to me b/c am loving cardamom right now. Have never tried baking with rice flour but now I have inspiration. Thanks for starting these cool bloghops – such fun!
I never made cardamom flavored cake yet and i never did any cake kind of baking with rice flour. This cake looks so good! I need some with my coffee right now.
Hi, I’m so interested in joining your rice blog hop program ^^. But, I made a mistake by entering my entry for twice. Can you help me to erase one of the entries? Thanks a lot and so sorry for the inconvenience :D
Thank you for sharing your recipe. Will delete the additional entry.
What a wonderful cake. I love cardamom and bake with it frequently. But I would never have thought of mixing in rice flour into a cake like this. Great idea. Probably makes the crumb even more tender, no?
Yes, it does. Thank you, Julia.
Beautifully done, it looks gorgeous, I would like to take part in your rice hop, is it got a limited entry to this…., I have never used rice bran oil, thanks for this info
A wonderful recipe! Very interesting.
Great links too.
