how to make rice puddingcaramelized rice pudding recipe


1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Combine coconut milk, rice, cinnamon and vanilla extract into a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until rice has absorbed most of the liquid, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from heat.

2. Meanwhile, heat sugar and water in a saucepan to make the caramel. Allow to cook over medium heat until slightly golden and fragrant (don’t overcook). Butter 5 small ramekins, then pour the caramel in the bottom of each ramekin. (optional: you can keep some caramel to pour on top of the rice pudding before baking).

3. Whisk granulated sugar, salt, and egg yolks in a bowl. Pour into the rice mixture, stirring constantly. Return to heat and bring to a simmer. Divide among ramekins arranged in a roasting pan, on top of the caramel; add boiling water halfway up sides. (Optional: You can add a bit of reserved caramel on top).

4. Bake until almost set, about 15 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Un-mold the rice puddings and transfer to individual bowls or dessert plates, drizzle with the caramel. Yum!
