Makes about 20 buns
170g ground rice
170g self-raising flour
110g caster sugar
1tsp baking powder
1 large egg
About 3tbs milk
20 small sweet gooseberries
Preheat oven 190C / gas 5
Rub the butter into the flours, add sugar and baking powder.
Separate egg. Break the yolk and add to dry ingredients with enough milk to form a soft dough.
Divide into balls the size of a large walnut. Make a hollow and drop a gooseberry into it. Close up and dip into lightly beaten egg white.
Place on lightly greased baking trays leaving space between the buns as they will spread slightly, then flatten slightly with the heel of your hand.
Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Let them cool on the tray for a few minutes, then turn them onto a wire rack to cool completely.
