Milk Rice Cake Recipe || 8 Amazing Serving Ideas

The milk rice cake recipe is a lifesaver when you crave something sweet and savory at the same time. It’s made with rice flour, soba noodles, eggs, and some milk to soften it.

You can also make a more savory version by adding seaweed flakes to the batter before cooking it. If it’s too dry and hard, add some more milk. If it’s too soft and sticky, add some more flour.

You can also use this recipe to make savory bun noodles with pork, cabbage, and egg. You also added a bit of salt and sugar to soften the flavor because I like my food a bit sweet.

A typical milk rice cake recipe is round-shaped, but if you’re short on time, you can also use a square pan and cut it into wedges for nuggets.

The best thing to do would be to find a source of organic products to make it healthier.

Is Dessert Rice Cake Recipe Korean?

Milk rice cake recipes are popular snack items in Taiwan and Korea. It’s a bit of a regional thing, so that the recipe can vary from one part of the country to another.

In Taiwan, you make the dough with eggs instead of milk, so it’s a little more egg-heavy than this version. Here in Indonesia,

we have another similar dish called nasi panggang which also includes some noodles and beef (green onions).

Can I Use Regular Flour Instead Of Glutinous Rice Flour?

Yes! You can use regular flour instead of rice flour. I just like rice flour because it produces a lighter, fluffier cake. Regular flour will still make a soft dessert much better than store-bought cakes and cookies!

Is Mochi Flour The Same As Rice Flour?

Mochi flour is just regular white flour. There is no difference between mochi and rice flour in this recipe. If you can’t find mochi flour, you can use any regular flour or white rice flour.

What Does Milk Rice Cake Recipe Taste Like?

The milk rice cake recipe is the stuff dreams (sweet and savory) are made of. It’s not as sweet as you would think for being named “cake,” but it has that great balance of flavor you crave when you want something comforting and special.

The texture is light, soft, and fluffy, similar to pancake batter; very similar to a Japanese rice flour dish I make from time to time.

How Do You Keep Milk Rice Cake Fresh?

Store-bought cakes and cookies can go stale after a couple of days, but if you’re not in a rush to eat this, you can store your milk rice cake in the refrigerator for 3 days or in your freezer for a month.

Before eating it again, make sure you heat it in the microwave, so it’s completely warm and soft again – just enough to melt the delicious butter on top.

How Do You Make Milk Rice Cake Recipe Taste Better?

The best way to make this recipe better is to eat it right away! If you want to store it for a couple of days, keep it in an airtight container because the butter can seep off and affect the texture.

You’ll also want to heat the milk rice cake again, so it’s nice and warm before eating. Just pop the pieces in your microwave for 30-50 seconds until they are soft enough to eat.

How To Freeze Milk Rice Cake Recipe?

1. Line a baking pan with parchment paper, then put milk rice cake pieces in the pan. Cover each loaf with plastic wrap and freeze it.

2. Once they’re frozen solid, transfer them to a freezer-safe container or bag and keep them in the freezer for up to a month! Just thaw them at room temperature before eating.

3. Reheat them in the microwave for 30-50 seconds until soft and warm.


The milk rice cake recipe is best enjoyed as a dessert because it’s not too sweet. However, if you want to make it savory, try adding soy sauce, wasabi,

and green onions for a more authentic meal. It’s versatile, and you can modify any part of the recipe to suit your taste!
