Dessert

Arroz con Leche // Peruvian Rice Pudding

Most Latin countries have delicious versions of rice pudding – but this is my favorite! This is a perfectly creamy delight, and with the addition of port wine at the end, becomes a big kid version of a little kid favorite! This recipe can easily be doubled for larger groups – or just to enjoy more for yourself!

Arroz con Leche // Peruvian Rice Pudding

Yield: 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of white rice
  • 5 cups of water
  • 8 whole cloves
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 1/2 cups of milk
  • Orange peel
  • 1 (497g) can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons of port wine

Preparation

  1. In a large pot, combine rice, water, cloves and cinnamon sticks. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, partially cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until all the water is absorbed.
  2. Pour in milk and add orange peel; bring the mixture to a simmer again. Allow to simmer 20 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed; stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove cinnamon sticks, cloves and orange peel. Add the sweetened condensed milk and stir with a wooden spoon. Continue to cook over a low simmer until the mixture thickens, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the egg yolk and port wine. Temper the mixture by adding 3 tablespoons, one at a time, to the egg mixture, stirring after each addition. Add egg mixture back to the creamy rice and stir to combine.
  5. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon when serving.

  9. Mm! The texture of yours looks like porridge! REAL good!I’m a little confused though as to what the texture of rice pudding should be…porridgy, more liquidy, or..what?
