Creamy Lemon Rice Pudding




Introduction: Creamy Lemon Rice Pudding

I've always loved the old fashion rice pudding from when I was a child. After trying different recipes from cookbooks, magazines, or the internet, I took it upon myself to try create my own recipe for rice pudding. It took quite a bit of experimentation, but I finally got it right! This creamy lemon rice pudding, without a doubt, absolutely delicious and EASIEST rice pudding recipe I have ever made.

Step 1: Ingredients:

1 cup medium-grain white rice 

2 cups milk 

2 tablespoons heavy cream

2 cups water 

1 tablespoon salted butter 

Pinch of kosher salt 

One 8-ounce can sweetened condensed 

1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

Zest of 1 to 11/2 lemons (fresh)

Lemon juice of 1 lemon (fresh squeezed))

1 large egg, beaten

Extra lemon zest, garnish, opt.

Step 2: FYI...

For best results, please use a quality nonstick 3 quart saucepan with heavy bottom. Cleanup with nonstick is effortless!!!

Step 3: Directions:

Pour rice into a 3-quart saucepan (nonstick works well).

Step 4:

To the rice, add milks, cream, butter, salt and water, stir to combine.

Step 5:

Bring ingredients to a gentle boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, then cover the pan.

Step 6:

Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring twice as it cooks, until almost all liquid is absorbed and the mixture is creamy, 20 to 25 minutes.

Step 7:

Remove pan from the heat, stir, then add the sweetened condensed milk, vanilla and lemon zest and juice and stir to combine.

Step 8:

Return to the heat and cook for 5 more minutes, then turn off the heat. Slowly add beaten egg, stirring constantly.

Step 9:

Let the rice mixture rest in the pan for an additional 5 minutes.

Step 10:

Serve creamy rice pudding warm or cold with some fresh whipping cream and grated lemon zest over the top. Yield: 4 to 6 servings.

Step 11:

Refrigerate the leftover pudding to eat the next day. The consistency has changes significantly. It's creamy and stir-able, and the rice expands a bit. But the flavor is enhanced, a fabulously flavored!
