Comments on Rijstevlaai - Dutch rice pie

Recipes for Dutch (Limburgse) pies have been in my family for generations. For example this lovely rijstevlaai, one of my favorites!

Gravatar van Maike Great recipe! I surpirsed my mom for her 70th birthday with this cake :-) She is from Holland, and we just LOVE to eat these cakes when we are visiting! It has been a while since we were in Holland now, so it was really nice to have this vlaai at home as well! Her favorite vlaai is either rice or apricot. Do you have a recipe for that as well? :-) Thanks again! Best regards, Maike

Gravatar van Ohmydish Hi Darlene, I'm not sure which brand there's available in the US. I think it's also called pudding rice. It's rice that's more starchy and it cooks into a creamy texture. Hope you can find any, cause this pie is amazing! Have a nice day :-)

Gravatar van Marika Thank you for sharing. It’s amazing, we love rijstevlaas. Now I can ‘try’ to make it. Since Covid we haven’t been back to Holland, otherwise we’re there every year. Do you have the real Dutch apple pie recipe?

Gravatar van Ohmydish Hi Marika, I'm so sorry to get back to you so late! Thank you so much, I love rijstevlaai too! We live in France and going to our family in Holland in these covid times is hard, so I can image you haven't been back. Where do you live? Yes I do, this is my version of a Dutch apple pie: https://ohmydish.com/recipe/classic-apple-pie/ Have a great evening!

Gravatar van Rob Roobol i have been trying this recipe twice now and both times had to throw it out. The rice doesn't harden up with the milk which might be because I can only use skim milk. please help

Gravatar van Ohmydish Hi Rob, I never use skim milk but I have googled some recipes for rice pudding that does use skim milk. I think it should be the same ratio milk and rice, but maybe it's different because of the low % fat. What kind of rice are you using?

Gravatar van Bea Hi, I tried your recipe but it failed in the oven. It was indeed very dark brown after 15 min in oven and 10 cooling but when I opened it the rest was still lot of milk coming out of it ! Are you sure it should be in oven only 15 min? I saw recipes up to 60 min baking time at 170-180. Thank you :)

Gravatar van Ohmydish Hi Bea, so sorry to hear your pie didn't come out as it supposed to be. Dutch vlaaien are always baked in a very hot oven for a short period of time, that is what makes it a 'vlaai' instead of a regular pie. The rice pudding is supposed to be cooked before you add it to pie. That's why it isn't runny anymore and there won't be any milk coming out of it, because the rice has already absorbed the milk completely. But a real 'rijstevlaai' isn't set all the way, it supposes to be a bit soft like in my pictures. Lots of love, Véronique
