Mix together the brown rice, white rice, cornflour and sugar.

Add oil and margarine mix well or rub together using your fingers.

Little by little add tiny amounts of cold water until the mixture starts to clump together.

Cook in a hot oven at 200C for 15-20 minutes or until golden.

Hello Jeena,

This is a marvelous cake :). Will love to try.
Jeena, if I would like to substitute salted/unsalted butter in a recipe, do you know which one is the best for baking? Healthy and low fat but doesn't affect the moisture and the rising of the cake. Says a Chocolate rich cake. I am not sure if low fat olive oil spread works.

Hi Nellie,

The best margarines to use as a healthier buttter is any non-hydrogenated vegan margarine. They usually use seed oils, are low in saturated fats and are great for baking.

Thanks, Jeena. :-)
