Ingredients

  • 3

    cups water

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/2

    cup long-grain rice

  • 1

    package dry yeast

  • 1/2

    cup warm water

  • 3

    eggs

  • 1/2

    cup sugar

  • 1

    cup flour

  • 1/2

    teaspoon cinnamon

  • 6

    cups vegetable oil for frying

  • Powdered sugar

  • Steen’s Pure Cane Syrup (optional)

Directions

Bring 3 cups of water to a boil with the salt. Add the rice and cook until it is soft and slightly mushy, about 30 minutes. In a bowl dissolve the yeast in the 1/2 cup warm water. Add the rice and stir well to mix. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit in a warm, draft-free place for at least 4 hours or overnight. Beat the eggs with the sugar, flour and cinnamon, and fold into the rice mixture to make a thick batter. Let rise, covered, in a warm place for 30 minutes. In a large saucepan, heat the oil to 360 degrees. Drop the batter by tablespoonfuls into the hot oil and cook, turning, until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving, and drizzle with Steen’s syrup, if desired. This recipe yields about 24 cakes, or 4 to 6 servings.
