Rice pudding is very versatile. It is creamy and mild with a pleasant chew, and while you may have never thought about using it to create a fancy layered dessert, this comfort food can be transformed into something striking and interesting enough for a dinner party. Here we have combined the rice pudding with applesauce as well as whipped cream.

Bakepedia Tips

  • The look of this dish entirely depends on very careful layering and use of clear glassware. Use a small spoon and take your time as you create each layer. Add the pudding/applesauce to the center bottom of the glass and then use the tip of the spoon to push it out towards the edges – just make sure not to touch the inside of the glass with the food or spoon as you reach into it, or you will make smudges on the glass.
