Nothing is better than a cupcake in our daily life, simple if you are in a hurry, rich if you feel a little cold in a winter afternoon, with strawberries on a perfect beach in Greece.. The mother of a good friend of mine in Italy used to call "generi di conforto" all those wonderful cakes that you'd bring with you when you go on a trip or just on your sofa.. for me cupcake is a little bit like that.. something good, cute.. that will come with you on your daily life!

The best rice cake
I love this
cake, the first time I eat it in Sologno, a small village in Emilia, a beautiful region
of Italy close to Tuscany. Emilia is famous for good food.. some examples…
Parma Ham, Parmigiano Reggiano, pumpkin ravioli..not many cakes but good and
most of all made with local liqueur sassolino
that gives a nice flavor, of course if you live out of Italy you can use
rum, it works always well in pastry.
I'm having fun with pictures now!
How to do
your rice cake: put in saucepan 1l milk, 200g rice, 100g sugar, zest of 1
lemon, 200g raisin, a pinch of salt and bring to boil. Boil for 10 minutes while
stir. Out of fire put in 100g sassolino.
In a separate bowl mix 6 eggs and 200g sugar, mix it with hot milk and pour in
a 22cm diameter pan, bake it in the preheated oven 170°C for 45 minutes.
