Rice is yummy! Light fluffy grains that slip off your fork and into your mouth always make your mouth water, or gluten-free rice crepes that are lighter than handkerchiefs. But what makes us drool even more are the desserts using rice flour or cooked rice in them; rice puddings, rice cakes, Indian rice desserts like kheer, rice crispies, rice drinks, and more. So here’s the perfect list of rice pudding recipes, gluten-free rice cake recipes, desserts made with leftover rice, and a whole lot more.
