    rice pudding

    Help! I have been making rice puddings for years, trying different recipes, but have never found one that I really like. They either 'separate' (the one I made this morning did just that), or they are too 'solid'... or too wet & runny.
    Anyone have a 'winner'... that would not have the characteristics I mention above? Thanks! Feel free to email me if you'd like to.

    This one is an absolute winner! I make it all the time and it always get raves. If you cannot find short-grain rice at your grocery store, substitute arborio rice, the kind used to make risotto. It'll work too. This recipe is so good I have even made it as gifts, giving it to people in an attractive serving bowl.

    Hi Lennie -- many thanks for your recipe. However, I am a senior, on my own, and the quantity would just be far too much for me. Could I cut the ingredients in 'half' -- if so, what about the one egg yolk? It also 'sounds' like a lot of work.. but then, you say it is super... so would like to try it. Would you reply to me.. please feel free to use my email
    Thanks a bunch

    Rickie, you could eliminate the egg yolk, but the pudding would be a little less creamy/rich. But it would still be good -- for example, if you couldn't have eggs, just go ahead and leave out the yolk. And it's really not too much work! Just a lot of stirring icon_smile.gif PS: This pudding keeps well in the fridge, too.

    Rickie, I just found this recipe in a wad of my clippings. I've never tried it, but it sounds like it might be perfect for you so I'll pass it along.

    Lennie -- I checked out your rice pudding recipe, looks good! I just have one question: can I substitute soy or rice milk to make this non-dairy, or do you think that it would affect the richness of the recipe?

    I've never made it with soy milk; in fact, I've never cooked with soy milk at all so I don't know the differences between it and cow's milk. If there isn't much of a difference I can't imagine why it wouldn't be just as good. The richness and creaminess comes from the short-grain rice absorbing the milk, and the egg yolk adds some extra oomph at the end. I have made it without the yolk and it's fine. It's very important to only use short-grain rice; arborio rice works well if your grocery store doesn't sell regular short-grain white rice.
    If you do make it with soy milk, please let me know the results.

    IMHO soy mil wold not work, no cream, no fat... you wold not get the rich creamy taste that you get with milk. My mother always used full cream milk and added extra double cream for exactley that reason, she even went as far as putting a blob of butter on the top and puting it back in the oven to get a lovely "skin" on the top. But this is just my interpretation and my memory of rice pudding, try it with soy milk... It might be great icon_smile.gif) Do tell us!!

    If it's not quite right you could always add more of the soy milk and serve it as a sweet soup, with a bit of lemon zest and a sprinkle of cinnamon on top.
