Pour in the hot rice drink, stirring continuously with a beater whisk and mix everything well. Transfer the mixture back into the saucepan, put on the heat and bring to the boil. Allow to rest in a bowl for at least 1 hour.

Bake the pastry in a hot oven at 180° for 20-25 minutes, take it out of the oven and let it rest for 30 minutes at room temperature.
Sprinkle with icing sugar before serving.
