  • ½ cup All purpose flour
  • ¼ cup + 2tbsp Cream of Rice or Rice rawa
  • ½ tsp Instant Yeast
  • 2 tbsps Sugar, divided use
  • ¾ cup Lukewarm Water
  • tsps Condensed Milk (optional)
  • ½ tsp Vanilla extract


  • In a mixing bowl, combine flour, cream of rice, yeast, 1tsp sugar and water. Mix well, cover the bowl and set aside to rise for 1~2 hours. The more the batter rests, the more chance cream of rice has to soften.
  • Stir in the remaining sugar, condensed milk (if using) and vanilla extract. Mix to combine. Cover and set aside until the mixture gets frothy, about 30~45 minutes.
  • Heat an aebleskiver pan on medium heat. Put ¼tsp oil and pour about 1tbsp batter in each well. Cook for 1~2 minutes or until the bottoms get golden brown. Using a fork or a wooden skewer, flip them over and cook on the other side until golden and the inside is cooked through.


  • Use Whole wheat pastry flour instead of all purpose flour in the recipe to add some fiber and nutrition.
