To me, rice pudding is the ultimate comfort food.
Picture this: on a cold, stormy day, you nestle into your cozy armchair by the fireplace (in this imaginary world, I live in a place a bit more luxurious than my 500-square-foot NYC apartment). You throw the world's plushiest blanket over your legs and settle in to read your favorite book.
My next instinct would be to grab a hot mug of tea, so why not combine tea with rice pudding? It's the perfect win-win situation.
This Earl Grey Rice Pudding is rich and creamy, with just the right amount of tea flavor. It's pretty easy to make as well—you combine all the ingredients at once, bring them to a boil, and then just bake it all in the oven for an hour. I honestly can't decide if it's more delicious served hot or cold!
So, next time you're ready for a cozy afternoon in, make sure to have some of this rice pudding. I promise you won't regret it!
Tips for Making This Rice Pudding
Here are a few tips to get perfect rice pudding every time:
- Be sure to use uncooked rice. When you're making this recipe, the rice will cook both on the stove and in the oven. Uncooked rice is key here!
- Make sure to stir the mixture every so often while it's in the oven. As the rice pudding bakes in the oven, the top of the mixture will start to form a skin. To prevent that from happening, I like to give the mixture a good stir every fifteen minutes or so.
- Get creative with your toppings! I like to enjoy this rice pudding with walnuts and cranberries, but the options are endless. I especially love adding nuts to rice pudding for that extra crunch and contrasting texture.
Common Questions About This Rice Pudding
Totally up to you! I prefer to eat rice pudding cold, but you can enjoy it either way.
Stored in an airtight container, rice pudding will usually last about 3-5 days in the fridge.
Rice pudding will continue to thicken as it cools. If the mixture gets too thick, you can easily thin it out by adding a few tablespoons of milk.
