Hey guys welcome back to my blog, today I'm going to talk about a desert my Abuela made for me last night. My Abuela makes delicious salty food but she kills me with her sweets! Last night my Abuela made Arroz Con Leche. Arroz con Leche is a sweet desert made out of rice and condensed milk, also called Spanish Rice Pudding. However, it is sweeter and richer than rice pudding. Sounds wired to many but trust me you must try it! This deliciousness is made in about an hour.
How to Make:
Soak the rice, cinnamon sticks, lemon zest and whole cloves in the water in a heavy saucepan for 1 hour.
After soaking, bring the rice mixture to a boil on high heat, uncovered. When it starts to boil (about 5 minutes), lower the heat to medium and cook for 10 to 12 more minutes or until water is almost evaporated.
While rice is cooking, beat the egg in a bowl. Add the milk and stir well to mix. Add the egg mixture, vanilla extract and condensed milk to the rice and cook over medium-low heat, stirring carefully, until it thickens slightly or until desired consistency, about 25 to 35 minutes.
Let cool uncovered.
Note: be aware that as the rice cools it thickens. The finished product will be thinner than traditional rice pudding.
1 cup long-grain white rice
2 cinnamon sticks
1 tablespoon lemon zest
3 whole cloves
4 cups water
1 (12-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup raisins, optional
The best part is while the Arroz Con Leche is still warm make sure to sprinkle some cinnamon on top.
YOU'RE WELCOME! ENJOY!!
