Found this at abbeys-kitchen and tweeked it when my boys brought some wild apples home from across the road. A great way to use up left over cooked rice.
- 1⁄3 cup maple syrup
- 1⁄3 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 2 chopped apples, peels on or off
- 2 cups cooked rice, any kind
- 2 cups milk
- 1⁄2 cup raisins
- Heat maple syrup, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and chopped apple in a medium-sized pan until bubbly.
- Add cooked rice, milk and raisins and bring to a simmer, uncovered for about 15 minutes or until mixture thickens, stirring occasionally.
- Serve warm. If desired, each serving may be sprinkled with a crunchy topping such as coconut, wheat germ, Grape nuts cereal or sunflower seeds.
Rather than a dessert, I did this for breakfast to use up my leftover brown rice. The taste was lovely & rich but perhaps a little too sweet for me. If I make again I would probably omit the sugar & just use maple as the sweetener. In place of raisins I used dried blueberries for a delicious breakfast treat. thanks for posting!
