Mommy's baked sweet rice dish

In Czech we call it “Rýžový nákyp”. Just so you know in case you talk with somebody from Czech. 🙂

As I got this recipe from my mom in European measurements I tried to adjust it to US measurements. In brackets I left the Czech way. Here is what we need.

  • 3/4 liter of milk
  • 1 cup of rice (20 Dg)
  • 3 eggs
  • 7 tablespoons of UNSALTED butter (10 Dg) Leave the butter outside on the counter when you start cooking the rice so it will be little bit softer and easier to process it.
  • tiny bit of butter you have left for coating the baking dish
  • 1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar (10 Dg) If you do it in deka gramms, just divide the sugar into 2 halves (1 half to mix with yolks and 1 half mix with whites)
  • breadcrumbs for coating the baking dish
  • can of peaches or apricots
  • lemon zest
  • pinch of salt

You should get only the yellow peel, not the white stuff cause it could be bitter.

Now we have the mixture ready and we can coat the medium rounded baking dish with butter and afterward with breadcrumbs.
