Our yearly event at work (Krystal-think small square burgers of the south) - the Krystal Square Off ended today with the Championship.
I am beyond exhausted...
And while I lay in a fetal position until I get additional strength to go through next week I decided to make a great dessert for someone so weary...
Diner Style Rice Pudding (another great recipe from the Epicurious Iphone App)
You just put it on the stove top for a while and your done. It's sooo rich and comfoting - a perfect way to recoup from an exciting weekend.
Diner-style Rice Pudding
Yield: Makes 6 servings
3 cups whole milk
1/2 cup short-grain rice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup raisins
1 tablespoon unsulfured molasses, optional
Bring milk, rice, and salt to simmer in heavy medium saucepan. Reduce heat to low. Cover and gently simmer until rice is very tender and liquid is almost absorbed, stirring occasionally, about 1 1/2 hours.
Whisk milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon to blend in medium bowl. Stir in raisins. Gradually stir egg mixture into rice mixture. Stir over low heat until mixture is just thickened, about 6 minutes. Transfer to bowl. Stir in optional molasses. Cool. Refrigerate until well chilled. (Can be prepared 2 days ahead.)
