Do you like rice pudding?


As a kid, I didn't care for rice pudding. I don't know if I picked up on preferences of one of my parents. Or maybe it was ny limited exposure to a bland gloopy rice pudding that was enlivened only with raisins.

 

When I became exposed to Portuguese cuisine, I discovered that I was missing out on a flavorful and comforting dessert. Lemon peel and a cinnamon stick flavor the milky rice as it cooks. A generous dusting of cinnamon decorates and flavors the sweet rice. Arroz doce (sweet rice) is what the Portuguese call their semi-firm rice pudding.

 

My rice cookbook includes a recipe.

Although slightly less flavorful than I was hoping, this rice pudding came out ok. I might tweak the recipe, but I expect to revisit it.

I'm always looking for a good rice pudding recipe. I have yet to find the one. I love Kozy Shack rice pudding and would like something similar, but homemade.

I never tried commercial rice pudding.

I love rice pudding. I usually do it with brown rice and add different things in combination which can include crystalized ginger, dried apricots, nutmeg, amaretto, sultanas, nuts, and maple syrup. Yum!

Dried apricots and maple syrup sounds great!
