How to make a beauty sponge

You can’t make a sponge without using one.

This post explains how to make one.

Ingredients Ingredients for a Beauty Sponge 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 cup white rice flour (not instant) 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 cup milk 1 cup rice 1/3 cup chopped cilantro 2 tablespoons freshly grated nutmeg (optional) Directions Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the olive oil, flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.

Set aside.

In another medium bowl with a whisk attachment, mix the milk, rice, nutmeg, and cilantro.

Add to the dry ingredients and mix well.

Pour in the flour mixture.

Mix until just combined.

Pour into the dry mixture and mix again.

Place a clean baking sheet in the oven.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool on a wire rack.

Garnish with chopped cheddar cheese, and serve.

She recommends using a nonstick baking sheet.
