This is a far cry from the standard rice pudding. It is served warm and has a soufflé-like texture, and fresh cherries give it a distinction that the familiar raisins in common rice puddings lack. Other fruits can be substituted for the cherries: Austrians love this with sliced apples, but berries are excellent, too. The pudding can be served by itself, or with a pitcher of Vanilla Sauce or room-temperature heavy cream for pouring on top.
