Rice Pudding (Tuesdays with Dorie)

Rice Pudding
Vanilla Rice Pudding *

* No, I don't have gigantic spoons! This glass is super small (picked it up at the local Goodwill recently)

For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie, Isabelle of Les gourmandises d’Isa picked Arborio Rice Pudding on pages 412 and 413 of Dorie's book, Baking: From My Home to Yours.

Super simple recipe too! Parboil rice, add milk and sugar and stir and stir. Just be sure to take a sharpie and change the directions! Dorie Greenspan herself wrote to our group and said there is a typo in the recipe - cook for 55 minutes, not 35 minutes until it is a bit thick.

Rice Pudding
I got my arborio rice in the Whole Food bulk bins. You parboil it for 10 minutes before cooking it in the milk and sugar.

Rice Pudding
Yeah, I liked! Who needs to buy Kozy Shack when you can make your own!

I made the vanilla version per the recipe, using vanilla paste for those cute little flecks and rich vanilla flavor. Next time, I might add some orange blossom water and orange zest for a fruity dessert.

Be sure to check out the other Tuesdays with Dorie bakers!

Your looks nice and thick! I wish I could;ve gotten to that consistency, although I'm sure that impossible considering I used brown rice. I remember Kozy shacks.. my mom would never buy that for me.

That first image is just beautiful! Love that glass!

Mmm, those glasses are diet portions! Just what we need for TWD, LOL.

Yours looks perfect. My rice was much more shaggy looking after the parboil. Interesting.

Though I had never made rice pudding before, I thought that the timing might have been off. I really need to start reading that P & Q more often! :o) Looks wonderful.

I love the idea of vanilla paste - where do you find that? And the orange blossom water is a fab idea. Someone else mentioned cardamon and lime, which also sounded good.

Lovely, as always!!!

Love your "after" shot! Looks like you really enjoyed it. I have never heard of Kozy Shack until today. Gonna have to try that. Yours looks delicious.

The pudding sounds like it turned out well enough for you to make it again, which is great! And I love that little glass.

Maria said... [Reply to comment]

Great photos!! I am glad you liked the pudding. I haven't tried this one yet, but I am going to!!

Beautiful pictures! Allthough my positive thinking makes me want to prefer the full glass, I'm not sure I wouldn't be tempted to say the empty one... is my favorite!

Cathy said... [Reply to comment]

Oh, I want one of those tiny little glasses! It's perfect for a dainty serving of this pudding. Yours looks perfect! You are so right -- no need to buy Kozy Shack any more when we can make our own in just 35- whoops! - 55 minutes!

Dang, I thought about using orange flower water as well. It's good to see that you liked it. :)

Jodie said... [Reply to comment]

I love your pics, what a cute little glass!

All I ever make with mine is risotto, I'll have to try the pudding

Mary Ann said... [Reply to comment]

I thought mine looked ok, but then I came over here and saw what it is supposed to be like! Your pudding turned out perfectly!~ I love the little glass. Goodwill is great!

I love your photography! I used brown rice too so I'm with steph's comment. Oh dear! I really should've gone out of my way to find arborio rice.....dang!

Love your image! the cups are perfect and you did a great job!

Steph said... [Reply to comment]

oh give it up...you know you're hiding a giant in your house and you have to keep making all these yummy baked goods to keep him happy :) Your pudding looks amazing, I think you'll put Kozy Shack out of business!

SUGAR B said... [Reply to comment]

The Food Librarian strikes again! I love it! Your pictures tell a beautiful story . . . this is the pudding, now you see it, now you don't! :)

I made the chocolate one.

I even took a bite.

Marthe said... [Reply to comment]

The glass is soooo cute! Glad you liked the pudding... I chickened out and am now in the process of making the raisin snails I missed.

Carol Peterman said... [Reply to comment]

Nothing beats vanilla bean specks! It looks great.

Di said... [Reply to comment]

I'm glad you enjoyed this one. I'm going to have to try the vanilla paste at some point.

n.o.e said... [Reply to comment]

Oh, vanilla paste sounds really good; I've never heard of it. And I'm coveting your little dishes; just perfect for the modest quantity that this recipe yields. Great job.

Megan said... [Reply to comment]

Yay for you - it turned out perfect! Mine - not so much.

Teanna said... [Reply to comment]

Gigantic spoons overtake the rice pudding!!! LOVE it! Love that cute little glass! Your rice pudding looks delicious!

Kait said... [Reply to comment]

Cute photos! I love that bright, splashy pink. And the pudding looks so yummy.

Rachel said... [Reply to comment]

Your photos are beautiful as always--and I love the tiny glass--so cute!

Shari@Whisk: a food blog said... [Reply to comment]

Nothing beats Kozy Shack like homemade! Your photo looks delicious, and I love finding food props at second hand sales too. Although I didn't read the P&Q (shame on me!) and didn't find out about the typo, I still enjoyed the taste of mine.

Carmen Cooks said... [Reply to comment]

Yum, I love the little glass you used. It looked like the perfect serving size! The pudding looks delicious!

Jess said... [Reply to comment]

Looks great! And much better than Kozy Shack (which I've only tried once, and it was good).

bakingwiththeboys said... [Reply to comment]

Love your adorable little glass but can't share your opinion on the rice pudding.

Liliana said... [Reply to comment]

Your pudding looks perfect! Don't think I will be buying Kozy Shack anytime soon!

TeaLady said... [Reply to comment]

Glad this worked out for you. After all the positives on this recipe, guess I will bite the bullet and try it - if I can find arborio. Great job. Love the little dish and 'giant' spoon.

Judy said... [Reply to comment]

Your pudding looks delicious and also looks like it turned out just fine. Vanilla paste sounds like the perfect addition, too.

Monica H said... [Reply to comment]

Ooh, I just made rice pudding. I love it!
