This week's Arborio Rice Pudding TWD recipe came at the perfect time. I had every single ingredient in my home! (that is uncommon!)
I love rice pudding. I have fantastic memories of the dish at Christmastime. My mom makes her family recipe every year. (more later on our family's Swedish smorgasbord)
After reading the recipe, I quickly found out that this was going to be nothing like my mothers. I was still excited, and new it was going to be more like Provo's Pudding on the Rice and NYC's Rice to Riches. I can do the cold pudding thing.
Well, it didn't turn out so hot. I made the huge mistake of miscalculating the amount of whole milk I had and added heavy cream as a replacement. Oops. Based on all the other member's experiences I should have just kept my smaller portion of liquid. It came out soupy even after refrigeration. But the flavor was still amazing. I used my favorite Madagascar bourbon vanilla. After the runny disappointment, I was so burned out that I didn't want to attempt it again. However, after seeing others results like this, I have got to try it again.
Check out the others TWD members' puddin' and get the recipe from Isabelle of Les gourmandises d’Isa.
