They look great Sonia. Did they cut up nicely? I think I might just have to make this and bake them in individual round ramekins so they look neat and tidy!

Quinn, not that really nicely after cut out, have to wait till completely cold. Ya, good idea to bake individually.

A few years back, when my Mexican business partner brought his whole family to live in China, 2 food items saved the day for the kids - eggs and cheese. This yummy looking dish will certainly go well with them!

Sonia, I love your site and has been referring to it like a bible. As I was googling for this baked rice cake recipe, I found a copy cat who copy the whole of your recipe plus picture and change the rice to basmathi. Here is the page http://raindropsbasmatirice.wordpress.com/2012/09/22/baked-cheese-rice-cake/
