Written by litsa. Posted in Deserts, Recipes


Here is a Greek favorite ….Rizogalo….Greek rice pudding!


Rizogalo Greek rice pudding-Litsa1

The word Rizogalo comes from the words rice and milk.

We have so many recipes and so many different ways to make the very simple but delicious Rizogalo.

By now you must know that I favor easy recipes, and my recipe for this Greek rice pudding is just that, nice and easy!

Comfort snack for my family and one more recipe that it’s not big enough….I never make enough in my house, things have a way of disappearing unless you put your name on something that you really like, then there is hope….

I don’t like to make big recipes, I rather make it again in a few days, so it’s nice and fresh!

It’s a great comfort food, and children love puddings, and this one is very easy, also I love the fact that the ingredients are always available in my house!

And this is the secret, to make recipes with ingredients that are readily available and also ingredients that you can use many times and not just once…

Here is my recipe for Rizogalo

  • Ingredients

        1-liter milk

  • 1 cup rice (Arborio)
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • Vanilla and ½ tsp salt
  • Cinnamon for dusting

Place water and rice in a heavy pot and cook for a few minutes, or until water starts to evaporate.

Add milk and sugar, vanilla and salt

Stir well and cook on medium heat for about 15 minutes, stirring often.

Never leave unattended.

Milk has the tendency to overflow when it boils, make sure and lower the heat when it starts to boil

When it’s done, place your pudding in bowls and dust with cinnamon!

I like my Rizogalo when it’s nice and cold!

Walnut cake (Karythopita) Litsa!

Walnut karythopita by Litsa!

 Karythopita is a traditional Greek dessert. The original version is heavy for me and I always have a problem with baking soda in my baking. I found the cake was permeated with the strong scent of the baking soda and that was not to my liking.

I was looking for a fresh, light version of Karythopita, and I am so happy I found the perfect one.

Mr. Parliaros a very famous Greek pastry chef created a Karythopita that is perfect, light and moist.

The traditional version needs syrup to become moist, Mr. Parliaros version is moist on its own…

I tried his recipe and it’s a keeper, with just a few additions to make my sweet tooth happy and I love it.

My contribution was 2 tbsp Nutella because I think nuts and more chocolate are divine together also I poked some holes on the cake so the chocolate can go all the way in… Wow…
