Easy rice cakes

Easy rice cakes… the name says it all! I could have called them lazy rice cakes, because you don’t even make the dough yourself. But lazy isn’t the right word to use when you have to wait 40 mins before your rice pudding is ready (and occasionally stir it, which is obviously hard work!)

Preparation time

40 min preparation + 25 min cooking


5 cakes



Print this recipe


For 5 cakes
  • 1 sheet of puff pastry
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 500 ml unsweetened almond milk (or semi-skimmed milk if you don’t need it to be lactose-free)
  • 90 g dessert rice
  • 60 g Zùsto (or add more to taste if not sweet enough)
  • 20 g hard margarine
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 egg


  • Small cake tins
  • Saucepan

Preparation method

  1. Add the vanilla extract to the milk and bring to a boil. When the milk boils, add the rice.
  2. Put the lid on the pot and simmer for 40 min on low heat. Stir frequently!
  3. When the rice pudding is ready, add the Zùsto, margarine and salt (mixing well). Allow the rice pudding to cool.
  4. Split the egg and beat the egg white until it is stiff. Mix the egg yolk into the rice pudding and gently spoon in the beaten egg whites.
  5. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease the cake tins with margarine. Cut circles (the size of the small cake tins) from the puff pastry and place in the cake tins (about 32 g of puff pastry per tin).
  6. Fill the moulds with rice pudding (+/- 85g). Bake the cakes in the oven for 25 mins.

About Yasmine Marchal

Hi, I’m Yasmine from the pastry blog Tartes Yaya. As well as running my blog, I work full time as an IT project manager. Baking is my creative outlet, but I also enjoy sports (jogging, hiking, aerial dance and horse riding).

I’m mum to an 8 year old boy, Ilyas, and a 6 year old girl, Fatou. In August 2018, Ilyas was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (an autoimmune disease that is not caused by eating too much sugar… just to clarify that! ;)).Even though a type 1 diabetic can eat whatever they want and don’t have to follow a special diet, their body has greater difficulty in processing real sugars because the body is not able to produce insulin itself or manage insulin spikes properly.

My son’s diabetes led me to discover Zùsto and since then, Zùsto has been my favourite sugar substitute!
