Orange Rice Cake

From Two Greedy Italians - who are clearly legends. Not terrible cholesterol-wise and tastes much cheekier!


  • 1.7l Milk
  • 1 Vanilla Pod
  • 1/2 Lemon Rind
  • 200g Sugar
  • 300g Arborio Rice
  • 5 Large Free Range Eggs
  • 20g Raisins
  • Zest of 1 Orange
  • Orange Liqueur

Preheat your oven to 180˚c

Grease and line a cake tin (25cm ish)

Bring the Milk, Lemon (or Orange) Rind, Vanilla Pod, and Sugar to the boil gently

Add the Rice and simmer for 20 – 25 minutes

Cool the Rice and remove the Rind

Beat the Egg Yolks – Whisk the Egg Whites

Add Yolks to the Rice mixture, adding the Raisins and a dash of Orange Liquer (I only use a dribble) – then FOLD the Egg Whites in gently

Pour into the cake tin and bake for 1 hour until golden and super delicious.  Dust with Icing Sugar and Orange Zest when you serve it
