It's Sugar High Friday! SHF #76: Rice Sweets

Note: This event is now closed. Round up is posted here 

I have a weakness for dessert (just in case you had missed all this talk of cakes and cookies and cream puff swans ) and one of the blog events I eagerly check out is Sugar High Friday created by the awesome Jennifer, The Domestic Goddess. SHF is often described as an “international sweet tooth blogging extravaganza” with a different theme ever month, and each one dessert! Aaaand guess who is the giddy excited host this month? Me!! Yes, I get to open my inbox and hopefully get a sugar rush of toothsome posts from around the blogspohere all month long! Sweet! 


This month’s theme is Rice. As sweet is the nature of SHF, you can make any dessert you like as long as it features rice in any form as one of the main ingredients: Flattened, toasted, puffed, steamed, cooked, rice flour, rice cake, rice cereal, rice milk..rice in anyway is nice, but just make sure its sweet! :)  
Rice is a special boon for those allergic to dairy and gluten and often an ingredient in gluten free mixes so desserts made with gluten free flour mixes containing brown or sweet rice flour are fine too. 
Rice pudding, rice krispie treats, horchata, mochi, rice ice cream, South Indian sweet appams, ari unda...there are delicious rice based desserts from around the world, so go on be inspired and surprice us ;)
