I am a day late for French Fridays with Dorie, but it was worth the wait! We made Rice Pudding and Caramel Apples this week.
Rice pudding is something I have never made before. I have hardly ever even eaten it before. But it it something I have always known I would like. Any vanilla-flavored pudding is good in my book!
This rice pudding is different because it is made with Arborio rice, which retains some chewiness. It is topped with a delicious caramel sauce and apples.
I loved this dessert! The pudding is creamy and rich, with a wonderful vanilla flavor. The caramel apples are a great touch, but I can also imagine all sorts of toppings for the pudding. My husband liked the flavors, but didn’t care for the texture of the Arborio rice; he prefers his rice pudding a little less “grainy”. I would love to try this pudding with jasmine rice.
