TWD: Rice Pudding

Excuse me waiter, there's pudding in my rice! That's how I felt about this week's TWD recipe selection (chosen by Isabelle). I don't know if I have ever had rice pudding before but I don't think it is my kind of dessert. I love rice, especially arborio rice (which is used to make risotto) but, I'm not a big pudding fan.

However, I know that rice pudding is loved by many many people so I figured I would give it try. Thankfully, I checked out the "problems and questions" post and found out there was a typo in the book. I needed to basically double the cooking time.

Overall, the flavor was delish but I just couldn't get past the standard rice pudding texture. Hubs agreed.

I know my cousin is anxiously awaiting the results of the recipe because she is looking for a good rice pudding recipe. I'll give this one a thumbs up for her since it is probably the best rice pudding could taste.

Now, go check out the other bakers. Some of them made a chocolate version!!.You know I'm all vanilla at heart.

PS You know I get inspired by cheesy songs. This week's was:

"Rice Rice Baby"

All right stop, collaborate and listen
Rachel's back with old time tradition
Pudding grabs a hold of me tightly
It flows like a harpoon daily and nightly
Will it ever stop? Yo I don't know
Turn up the amps and I'll go
To the extreme I rock the mix'r like a vandal
Plate up the stuff, serve it classy with candles
Chillin' with my apron low,
Got my do-rag on so my hair won't blow
Hubbys on stand by waiting just just to taste. why?
Do you let him? Nope, I just stroll by
To the extreme my pudding's all ricy
Stick it in the fridge but it's gonna taste dicy.
If there was treat, you know I baked it
Check out the hook, while I put my cake in.

Rice, rice baby!

Yep, neither rice nor bread puddings ever had textures I wanted in my mouth. Pudding should be smooth, rice bumpy, and bread dry. Any mix or match of those and its a no go for me!

Too bad you don't like rice pudding. I guess you either love it or hate it!

I like the pretty whipped cream dollop on top of your rice pudding. Glad you tried it. I agree the vanilla is pretty good.
