Rice pudding is a creamy pastry made from rice boiled in milk, sugar and cornflour. It is common in many countries around the world with recipe variations. In some Scandinavian countries such as Sweden, Norway and Denmark it is a typical Christmas pastry. The favorite sweet of our childhood, whipping up fresh milk, aromatic vanilla and cinnamon. This sweet treat with few ingredients can get us out of trouble when we want to make something quick and nutritious!
