Rainbow rice cake (“mujigae ddeok”)

Posted on 19 July 2011 by admin     

How to make this beautiful and delicious multilayer Korean rice cake. The written recipe and photos and tips are posted on my website. I’m going to introduce a beautiful Korean rice cake today. It’s called mujigae ddeok (????). Mujigae means rainbow, so my ancestors must have got the idea for the name from a rainbow! I love it! This is an example of how they incorporated natural beauty into their everyday life. Even though the name of the rice cake is “rainbow rice cake,” it is usually made with only 3-5 different colored layers. That’s why this rice cake is sometimes called “colorful rice cake” (??, saekddeok). In this recipe, I am using 5 different colors from bottom to top: brown, green, yellow, pink, and white. This rice cake is made on special occasions like a baby’s 1 year old birthday, or a wedding. As you see in this video, making this rice cake takes a lot of effort and time, even though the ingredients are comparatively simple. However, if you make this rice cake for someone very special in your life, you wouldn’t care much about time and effort. : ) You may wish this while you’re rubbing the rice flour with your palms: “I wish my baby becomes healthy, smart, and a good, warm-hearted person!” “I wish my parents have healthy and long life!” “To show my love for my lovely husband (or wife) !” Leave a comment and let me know what you wish when you make this! Cooking time: 1.5 hours Ingredients: A 2 pound package of frozen rice flour, sugar

    @1703cathe Hi, thank you for your interest in my rainbow rice cake recipe. One of my blog readers made this rice cake with dried rice flour (short grain rice) and posted how she made on my website. Type in “How to make rainbow rice cake with dried rice flour” on the search box on my website.

    @MsSpecialkei depending on where you live some states have asian markets and some don’t you can go to the nearest asian market and find rice flour.
