Servings: 6 - Prep: 35 min - Cook: 30 min - Total: 1 h 5 min


  • 350g round rice (pudding rice)

  • 700ml whole milk

  • 300ml water

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 80g unsalted butter - room temperature

  • 200ml Creme Fraiche or Sour cream

  • 5 eggs

  • Salt

  • 1 lemon zest


  1. Start by thoroughly rinsing the rice, then transfer it to a saucepan along with the milk, water, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer until the rice has absorbed all the liquid and is tender.

  2. Transfer the cooked rice to a tray and let it cool to room temperature.

  3. In a mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.

  4. In another bowl, cream together the sugar, egg yolks, and softened butter until the mixture is creamy. Then mix in the crème fraîche or sour cream along with the lemon zest. At this point, you can also stir in sultanas or raisins if you prefer.

  5. Fold the cooled rice into the egg yolk mixture until well combined.

  6. Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the rice mixture, being careful not to deflate them.

  7. Pour the batter into a butter-greased baking dish and bake in a preheated oven at 180°C (356°F) for about 30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.

  8. Allow the cake to cool in the dish before serving with your favourite jam or chocolate sauce.
