Bacon Cake

Let’s be honest, it’s why you’re here

This might be my fav bake so far.

Rice flour MUST be mochi/sticky/short-grain/sweet/glutinous variety (it goes by many names). This can be bought in a big bag from any Asian supermarket for a couple of pounds, and you’ll be amazed how many of these shops are local to you once you look. Normal Western rice flour will not work with this!
