Serve hot, without waiting.
This recipe is intended as a main course with two pannequets per guest, but you can turn it into a starter by makeing smaller pannequets (half size).

If you don't have chicken stock to cook the rice, use water instead but it's less tasty. Same goes for the seeds: if you don't have flax seeds use sesame, poppy or anything else you like.
To eat right now.
Home made, and LCI for the seeds tip.

Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.
