I have a dessert craving

LOL Any of you have any good Rice Pudding recipes?
post #2 of 15
Here's a light creamy one that I just adore (must make it soon!)

From Madame Jehane Benoit's Encyclopaedia of Microwave Cooking:

Four Bowl Rice Cream

1/4 cup short grain rice*
2 cups light cream**
2 egg yolks
4 tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla***
2 egg whites

Place rice and cream in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave at Medium-high (70%) 20-25 minutes, stirring after each 5 minutes, until the rice is tender. Beat the egg yolks with the sugar and vanilla, until light and foamy. Add to the cooked rice, stir until thoroughly mixed. Microwave 2 minutes at medium (50%). Stir well. Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry, fold in to the rice custard, microwave at medium (50%) 1 minute. Pour into a pretty bowl and serve with garnish(es) of your choice: fresh or canned fruit, toasted slivered almonds, shredded coconut, jam, raisins or dried cranberries, or...

Notes: *short grain rice gives a creamier pudding; long grain will be lighter
\t**if you don't have light cream, use half whipping cream and half milk
\t***or substitute the liqueur of your choice (orange brandy is excellent)

We often don't bother with the garnishes, and it serves three. If you serve it with fruit, it may go as far as six. That assumes, however, that you're not making it because you need a "fix"

Hope you enjoy it.

Thank you!

And yes, I need a rice pudding fix, it's been at least 20 years since I've had any

20 years? That's too long to go without pudding, but I guess you just meant rice pudding. Are you going to make it with parchment like you do with brownies? Let us know how it turns out.

Oh man, you guys are terrible. I want rice pudding so bad right now. The only one in this house who will eat it with me is my mom. Everyone else thinks it's gross.

They don't know what they're missing.

If I would cook extra rice I would add some milk, butter, cinnamon and sugar to make a "faux" rice pudding. It's still tasty!!!

My mother, rest her beautiful soul, used to make the most scrumptious rice pudding. I think I have her recipe somewhere, I will have to look for it. I have never made it myself.
