Arroz con Leche El Mexicano - Mexican Rice Pudding
Arroz de Leche Recipe
This is a favorite Mexican dessert in Mexico, also called Arroz de Leche. Kids love it, and so do their parents. Allow a little over three hours to prepare, although most of this time will be baking. Serves six.
4 cups milk, 1 cup rice, 1 cup sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 cup heavy cream and 1/4 tsp salt.
In medium saucepan, heat milk over medium-high heat, until scalded but not burned. Pour rice into 9 x 14 inch pan. Cover with scalded milk, and bake at 325 degrees for 3 hours, or until the rice is soft, but not dry. Stir occasionally during first hour to prevent sticking. If necessary, add more scalded milk. After 2 hours, 45 minutes remove from oven. Add vanilla, sugar, and cream. Return to oven to finish baking for 15 minutes. Serve hot.
