2 Cups milk
2 large eggs
Olive oil for frying
Zest of lemon or orange
1 Tablespoon sugar
11/2 Teaspoons baking powder

Cook the rice in milk until soft. Be careful it doesn’t burn in the bottom

Once cook, add the lemon zest and sugar and set it aside to cool

Once completely cool, add the rum, eggs, baking powder, flour and salt.

Combine thoroughly then cover and let the mixture rest for several hours.

Deep fry spoonfuls into hot oil until golden brown.

Transfer to paper towel so that excess oil can be absorbed before rolling in sugar.

Frittelle di rise are best enjoyed when still warm.
