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.

  • 150 grams sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 lemon
  • salt
  • breadcrumbs
  • powdered sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 95 degrees Celsius.
  2. Peel and blanch the almonds and crush in a mortar with 2 tablespoons of sugar.
  3. Cook the rice in the milk about 20 minutes.
  4. Add the almonds, sugar and candied fruit.
  5. When the mixture is cold, add the eggs and apinch of salt.

Since two of our children have wheat allergies I’m always looking for tasteful and interesting ways to use rice. I used factory peeled almonds and ground them in my food processor. I used candied orange and lemon peel for brightness and a heart-shaped cookie cutter to say “I love you!”
