SWEET CARNIVAL TREATS
They are just what you need to open one of the sweetest times of the year: Carnival.
One of the most loved carnival sweets in Italy, which you can find in Venice during the Carnival, are “FRITTELLE DI RISO“.
They are small rice balls, easy to make, starting with rice cooked in milk, filled with Pastry Cream that release a delicate lemon aroma that makes them irresistible.
Eat them hot, sprinkled with icing sugar, you will have to hide them so as not to make them disappear.
The recipe for SWEET RICE FRITTERS is very simple.
To make them you will need a few ingredients that we often already have at home: rice, milk, flour, sugar and eggs.
I wanted to make today’s recipe even more delicious by filling the pancakes with Pastry Cream but if you don’t like it or want to shorten the preparation time you can safely not use them, they are still very good.
Let’s now see together all the steps to prepare Italian-style sweet rice pancakes.
They are usually prepared for carnival but they are so good that after tasting them you will find an excuse to cook them all year round.
