Rice is a wonderful and versatile food! You can make endless recipes using rice, but I particularly like to use rice for making cakes, cookies, desserts, and the irresistible frittelle di riso.

Here is a very simple recipe I’ve learned from my mother and grandmother. This recipe was made very often as it is made using very simple,poor, and g

enuine ingredients that one always has at home.

  • 150 gr of melted butter
  • 5 eggs

How to make the Rice Cake Recipe

1. Boil the milk in a pot and add some sugar and a pinch of salt

2. Add the rice to the milk and continue cooking over a low flame until rice has fully absorbed the milk and let cool
