Recently, I discovered two wonderful blogs: Bakerette and Cannelle et Vanille devoted to baking and dessert making. Their photos is pleasure to look at as well as the well-written stories to read. My eyes were caught by the rice pudding posts, and I had been salivating ever since. It felt exactly like my type of dessert. I had to make it, so I did. Was it good? It was great! My little son, when I asked him if he liked the pudding, answered with a long lasting “mmmmm”. Such an easy way to make mommy happy. Basma, Aran, thank you very much for the recipe. And special thanks to Basma for her suggesting to serve the pudding with the ice cream. I served it with the cocoa nib ice cream sprinkled with extra nibs over the top – what a delight!
I didn’t print the recipe before proceeding (the internet was out), I relied on my memory during the cooking. It turned out more like Aran’s, I guess. But I used half of the single cream and half of the whole milk as per Basma’s suggestion. Using either recipe, you can’t go wrong with it.
