Description

If you love cake and rice pudding, you've come to the right place since this classic Italian hybrid (torta di riso) with crushed almonds and candied citrus zest offers the best of both worlds. Add a dash of orange liquor, such as Grand Marnier, to really make it special. Light and delicious, it gets sprinkled with powdered sugar post-baking. Consider using arborio or carnaroli rice, as they are rich in starch and make for a smooth, appealing texture.
