Red Bean Rice Flour Cake

This is an unusual cake since it is made not with all purpose flour (wheat flour), but using rice flour, so if you are allergic to gluten, this cake is for you :) The rice flour I use is the one commonly used in South East Asian dessert, not the Japanese kind. As for the red bean, I use home made red bean, but you are free to use store bought ones if that is easier.

As for the texture, this cake is quite crumbly, especially if you try to cut it while it hasn’t completely cooled off yet from the oven. It is not too sweet, but of course it is mostly because my home made red bean is not as sweet as the store bought version. If you like sweeter dessert, either use store bought red bean paste, or add some sugar to the batter, I would say about 14 cup sugar should do it for those with sweeter tooth :)
