Wow, this looks delicious! I'd never heard of Tuscan rice cake, but it certainly seems like my kind of pudding! Great recipe.


What a treat! Rice pudding and custard together, the combination sounds amazing. Another winner recipe that I just can't wait to try. That mouthwatering close-up picture of the slice is making me so hungry right now;)


Thanks Charlotte & Adriana for your comments! As soon as I saw the original recipe of this in the Tuscany book I knew I'd have to veganise it, because I used to love eggy & milky puddings! I hope you get to make it :-)


Amazing! I plan on making this pie for an upcoming dinner party. How long does the pie store in the fridge for? Do you think it would be possible to make two days in advance? Thanks!

Hi Nathan! I think two days is about the limit. It is great after one day (the best) and I think you may still be okay for serving (and it seeming fresh) after another day, as long as you wrap the dish well in plastic film. You could potentially serve with a vegan cream if it has dried out a touch!

Please come back and let me know how it turned out!

Found your blog while for info on black peas Andrea. Although not veggy or vegan myself, I love the look of some of your recipes, especially the gluten free ones, and will be sending a link to my sister-in-law who has recently been diagnosed coeliac.

Look forward to reading more!!!

Andrea! I have made the mixture and my pies (I have made 3 - two dinner parties over the next two days plus one to have a little try on) are currently in the oven. I don't think I am going to be disappointed with the result! I had a spoonful or five of the liquid before putting into the trays - woah! Brilliant. I this with peanut milk that I make and included the coconut milk. So excited to try. Just over an hour until the oven goes off...

Nathan - PLEASE tell me these rice cakes turned out great for you?!!!

Ann - thank you for taking time to comment! Please let me know how you get on with my recipes, and if your sis-in-law likes the gluten free ones :)

Andrea! Sorry for the delay. Yes the cakes turned out fabulous. I had so much - I really over anticipated how much I thought I was going to need. So I ended up freezing one and then thawed it a week or so later. And stilllllll amazing. I made some banana/raisin ice cream to serve with them... just so yum. I think I am going to make a chocolate variety of these next! Today I am going to make your potato cakes :D

Andrea - Chocolate and Beyond

Nathan thanks so much for the feedback. I am really overjoyed to find out they turned out so well for you. Yes, even one cake is quite a lot as it is so rich, but good to know it freezes well! I hope the potato cakes turned out well for you too!


THANK You sooooooo very much! Just made your recipe, it is beautiful. I am not vegan, but due to my son's multiple food allergies, I have been trying many vegan desserts and this one is the best so far! X


Hi Cristina - I'm soooo happy you enjoyed this recipe! It is one of my favourites, too :)

  • I'm Andrea, and am obsessed with creating fabulous food. After I managed to ditch dieting, the reason Chocolate and Beyond was born, it seemed natural to evolve my site into a foodie blog. More so since I also ditched animal produce to be vegan. Now, I love showing how inventive cruelty-free cooking can be. And sometimes I like to rant, too. I wouldn't be myself otherwise :) x

    PS. This blog LOVES your comments! Especially about the food!
