  • 500 g strawberries
  • 16 ladyfingers (savoiardi)
  • 1 Tbsp icing sugar
  • 1 cup hot milk with espresso coffee and one tablespoon vanilla syrup
  • Cinnamon, sugar (optional)
  • Instructions

  • Wash and hull the strawberries and leave to drain. Reserve a few for decoration then finely chop the rest and mix well with the icing sugar so that they release their juices.
  • For the ladyfingers:
  • Make an espresso coffee (with instant coffee if you do not have espresso) and pour into the hot milk. Add the vanilla syrup and mix all together with a little cinnamon, if using.
  • Briefly dip the ladyfingers into the milk and coffee mixture and lay in a deep glass dish of approximate size 20 cm.
  • Spread over half the rice pudding followed by the chopped strawberries and top with the remaining rice pudding.
  • Refrigerate until cold. Before serving, sprinkle with a little cinnamon and sugar, if liked.
  • Garnish with the halved, reserved strawberries.
