Today's post comes from a multiple collaboration!!
First: the recipe, for which I thank Simona that made me change my mind about the homemade rice cake!
I had never found a recipe for this cake that I met all the way and he had the strong scent of egg that has always given me the idea of "frittatona", until one fine day at the home of a friend, Simona precisely, taste his workhorse and I fell in love, so, needless to say, I do give her recipe. The secrets to avoid the effect "frittatona" are in addition of course to have a few eggs, rum, lemon, but especially the divide the eggs and put egg whites! My contribution, as a personal touch, the goodness of this cake are vanilla (instead of vanilla) and a nice cinnamon stick!.
Second: the presentation, for which I thank instead Serena Studio BÜ who was kind enough to lend me the plate of his creation that you see under the cake and my Christmas tree! If you run out of ideas for Christmas gifts, but not only, go and visit his site, there are lots of beautiful things!
