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.

Ingredients needed for the Rice Cake

  • 300 gr of rice
  • 1 liter and a half of milk
  • 300 gr of sugar
  • 150 gr of melted butter
  • 5 eggs
  • the zest of one lemon
  • a small glass of rum
  • a pinch of salt

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

3. Beat the eggs in a bowl with the remaining sugar, and add the rice when it has cooled completely (it will take about 40 minutes)

4. Add the lemon zest, the rum, and the butter and mix well

5. Cook in the oven at at 180 °C (360 °F) for an hour

It is a delicacy 🙂
