Rijstevlaai / Dutch Rice Pudding Pie

"Rijstevlaai" (pronounced as raced-a-fly or raced-a-fla, depending on where you are from in Holland) is a delicious, creamy rice pudding pie that uses yeast dough instead of a pastry crust. It's filled with short grain rice cooked in milk, enriched with eggs and sugar. It can be served plain or whipped cream and some chocolate shavings atop. Serve cold or at room temperature.

DoughRice Pudding
  • 150 ml Milk at 20C/68F
  • 12 g Fresh yeast
  • 25 g Sugar
  • 240 g German#550 flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 Egg
  • 25 g Butter
  • 600 ml Whole milk
  • 120 g Round grain rice
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 Vanilla bean
  • 2 Eggs
  • 80 g Sugar
  • 10 g Vanilla pudding powder
  • 30 g Almond sliced (optional)
  1. In a bowl whisk together the milk, yeast and sugar. Combine flour and salt together in another mixing bowl. Pour the yeast mixture into the flour. Beat in egg and butter until the dough is fairly smooth. Cover with a cling film and let rise until doubled. Butter 10-inch-diameter springform pan. Press down the dough to release the air. Pat dough over bottom and sides of prepared pan. Cover and allow to rise until doubled.
  2. Bring milk to a boil in a large saucepan. Stir in rice, salt and vanilla bean, which can be used either whole or split to reveal the seeds and scraped into the rice. Bring them to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered until most of milk is absorbed and mixture is thick but still creamy, stirring frequently, about 30 minutes. Whip together 2 eggs, 80 grams sugar and pudding powder. Add the mixture into the rice and stir 2 minutes. Remove mixture from heat and cool to lukewarm.
  3. Preheat oven to 200C/400F. Pour the rice pudding into the risen dough and sprinkle the almond slices on the top of the pudding if using. Bake in the middle of preheated oven for 1 hour. Cool the cake completely in tin placed on a wire rack.

oh my goodness Angie!! That is a showstopper dessert. You got me drooling!

tigerfish 17/9/19 03:07

Interesting yeast dough as the crust. I'm a noob when it comes to baking but I think I may just prefer this crust than the usual pastry crust as this crust looks so spongy than the regular crumbly crust.

I've never seen this before, it looks brilliant! I'd love to try it.

Valentina 17/9/19 17:41

That is so creative and pure food art. you are so talented my friend!

Fran @ Gday Souffle 18/9/19 16:34

What a unique-looking pie- almost has the consistency of a cake- yum! I bet you could add a little cheese or something, and turn this into a savory dish!

Anca 20/9/19 16:06

I've made rijstevlaai before and it was very nice. It sounded a bit strange with a pastry case for rice pudding, but it works. Yours looks fab!

Abbe@This is How I Cook 22/9/19 04:54

WOW - I had no idea how much I had missed. Another fabulous recipe Angie. Love how you turned a rice pudding into a cheesecake like dessert. It looks fabulous and best it tastes fabulous as well.

Noob Cook 4/10/19 09:08

This is something new to me. The cross-section looks really fluffy.

Choclette 9/10/19 19:47

Gosh, I have never heard of this before. It sounds really interesting, but possibly something you need to try before you're sure if you like it or not.
