Why I Love This Recipe
My dad gave me this recipe and it works every time!
Notes: You can definitely use brown rice, or basmati or jasmine for extra fun. Also, raisins are always more fluffy, amazing, and tasty soaked for a while in a bit of lime juice.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 qt milk (dairy or otherwise)
1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp (uncooked)long grain white rice
1/2 cup plus 1 Tbsp sugar
2 egg yolks (you can use egg substitute of course)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp grated nutmeg
1/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup heavy cream (or non-dairy creamer)
1 Tbsp dark rum
Combine milk, rice, and salt in a medium pot over medium heat.
Bring to a boil, then simmer until rice is tender.
Combine 1/2 cup sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, egg yolks, and vanilla in a separate bowl.
Stir raisins, sugar, and egg mixture into the rice pot.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly for 4 minutes.
Remove and let cool.
Mix together cream, 1 Tbsp sugar, and rum in a bowl.
Beat until soft peaks form.
Take this and fold into cooled rice mixture with spatula.
