Cherry Rice Pudding with Cherry Sauce -  Ryžový Nákyp



Cherry Rice Pudding or in my native Slovakia known as Ryžový Nákyp is one of those dishes from childhood that brings lots of memories.


The main meal of the day in Slovakia was always lunch. Once a week usually Friday we had meatless sweet dish usually served after bowl of soup.


Every school, every factory and every office building had their own cafeteria that served hot lunches.


Cherry Rice Pudding or Ryžový Nákyp was one of the the typical meals served at school cafeterias on Fridays.

I always loved this dish and now I make it for my children on Meatless days. Of course I made little changes to my recipe, but the basic is the same.

In Slovakia Cherry Rice Pudding or Ryžový Nákyp is served with sweet fruit syrup or cherry juice poured over it.
