Be Mine, Sweet Honey Rice Cake

Duk3-2
Introduced to me as “Korean S’mores,” these little rice cakes are as easy to make as they are to eat.  And they taste as impressive as they look!  Rice cake, also known as “duk/tteok” in Korean and “nian gao” in Chinese, is made from glutinous rice and comes in various shapes and sizes at your local Asian market.  It is very popular as a salty dish (ie. Shanghainese Stir-fried Rice Cake or Korean Tteokbokki with spicy chili sauce), but my sweet tooth reigns supreme for today’s blog post.

The Korean rice cake featured here is a long one that you can slice like a banana into tiny pieces.  All you need is a pan or grill covered with coconut oil, some rice cake, and honey.  1) Grill or fry the rice cake for a few minutes, rolling it around until browned.  2) Use a pair of food scissors to cut the rice cake into bite-sized pieces.  3) Continue to brown each piece until golden.  4) Take out, arrange, and drizzle with honey.

These are perfect for entertaining when you need to whip up a quick dessert for guests, or even to involve your guests in the cooking process.  In a way, it is kind of like a campfire activity like s’mores or fondue.  For ultimate yumminess and chewiness, eat these babies instantly while they’re hot!  Once you get over how cute they are first…
