One of the simplest recipes for Sweet Rice Cakes; this apple + cinnamon version is a favorite!

This is one of the original sweet rice cake recipes designed by our founder, Allen Lim. No matter how many rice cake variations we try, this simple, sweet classic remains a favorite!

  • 3 cups uncooked sushi rice
  • 4 1/2 cups water
  • 1 apple, peeled and minced
  • 2 Tablespoons raw sugar
  • juice of one lemon (roughly 3 Tablespoons)
  • Top with: 2 Tablespoons raw sugar, 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon coarse salt

Combine rice, water and a dash of salt in a rice cooker and let cook. 

When the rice is finished cooking, transfer it to a large bowl and add the apple, sugar and lemon juice. 

Once all the ingredients are incorporated, adjust seasoning to taste. Evenly spread the mixture into a 9x12" baking pan and top with a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar and coarse salt. 

Let set up for a few minutes, then cut into squares and wrap with Skratch Paper
