It is such a good feeling to take myself to my childhood 😋
Yep, this is a very traditional Turkish dessert called „Fırında Sütlaç” which was my absolute favorite back home, and actually, it still is!
Basically it is a milk pudding with rice, also very typical for a lot of cuisines such as Milchreis in German, Arroz con Leche in Spain, Risolatte in Italy so on and so forth...
Buuut I think the turkish version takes this hearty dessert to another level by putting the cooked pudding in the oven for a few minutes and burning the top layer a little bit.
The crunchy, caramelized milk layer creates a perfect contrast with the light, sweet milk custard below! 👌🏽👌🏽Just describing it makes me crave it againn😂
