Soft and moist Rice Bread using cooked rice

Rice bread, making bread with cooked rice

Cooked rice bread is moist, soft, spongy and slightly sweet, quite similar to Potato bread. It is simple and hassle-free to make although the dough is a little sticky. It is excellent for toast.

With the amount of rice eaten in most homes, there is bound to be leftover rice from time to time. Instead of reheating your rice and serving it the same way, add variety to what you eat by making a whole new dish out of the leftover.

Sweet and Savoury Rice Bread using cooked rice

Why bother with making rice bread? With homemade rice bread, you control the ingredients and eliminate some additives and preservatives used in commercial baking.

This recipe is adaptable to savoury flavours so you can also make savoury rice bread with it. I love the savoury bread because it brings out the creative juices in you. You can add your favourite herbs, spices and condiments e.g thyme, rosemary, caramelized onions, basil, Scent leaf (nchaunwu), orange zest, sun-dried tomatoes etc. I sprinkled mine with a little sea salt.

Notes

  • You do not have to mash your rice, you can leave it whole.
  • If your rice is too wet, your dough might be too sticky and difficult to handle, just increase the amount of flour slightly.
  • Flavourful rice like basmati, jasmine, brown rice will add more flavour to your bread.
  • You can even use a mix of different types of rice.
