To make these biscuits, you’ll need:

  • 125 grams butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar

How to make Rice Bubble Biscuits

Prep by pre-heating the oven to moderate (180 degrees celsius, fan-forced), greasing some baking trays and measuring out your ingredients.

Let’s start.

You really only need 10 minutes max to have these in the oven.

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the egg, lightly beaten, and beat again until combined.

Fold in the rice bubbles followed by sifted flour.

Roll tablespoons of mixture into balls and place on greased trays, leaving room for spreading.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes on the tray before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.

I made these last weekend and everyone who tried them wanted more. When I initially looked at this recipe, l thought Rice Bubbles in a biscuit??? They are delicious and addictive. I now have to make more this weekend. The only problem I had was rolling the second batch. I think the butter got too warm. So l will try free form, instead of rolling. Thanks for sharing this old recipe.

Fun and different. Worked out really well. My 3 girls enjoyed making and eating these. They are a nice, crispy biscuit and you get an almost nutty flavour from the rice bubbles after they're baked. I'd recommend these to try!
