Fantastic muffins! A lovely treat with a cup of tea. Rice pudding is one of my favorite desserts, and I was really surprised how similar in flavor these muffins were. A great use for leftover rice, I used jasmine rice. Dried cherries were delicious though raisins would be wonderful, too. Made 12 muffins. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Oh man, these are delicious. I made quite a few substitutions, and it still turned out great.
Brown rice instead of white.
I only had 1/8 cup of heavy cream so I made up the difference with milk (I ended up using 1/4 cup less milk than this recipe called for, so a total of 1 1/8 cups milk and 1/8 cup cream).
I also used salted butter, a pretty cold egg, and raisins.
I topped each muffin with a sprinkling of cinnamon and slivered almonds. Mmm!
