Here is an old favorite from the Famous New York 21 Club. I like to add a little fresh ground Nutmeg to mine right before serving it. You can find more of their recipes in The ’21 Cookbook.
21 Club Rice Pudding
No need to go to a restaurant to have decadent rice pudding. Enjoy this easy recipe the next time the craving hits.
- 1 quart milk
- 1 pint heavy cream
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup long grain rice
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 1/2 cups whipped cream
In a heavy saucepan, combine the milk, cream, salt, and 3/4 cup sugar, and bring to a boil. Stirring well, add the rice.
Allow the mixture to simmer gently, covered for 1 3/4 hours over a very low flame, until the rice is soft.
Remove from the heat and cool slightly.
Blending well, stir in the remaining 1/4 cup sugar and the egg yolk. Allow to cool a bit more.
Preheat the broiler.
Stir in all but 2 tablespoons of whipped cream and add the vanilla; pour the mixture into individual earthenware crocks or souffle dish.
After spreading the remaining whipped cream in a thin layer over the top, place the crocks or dish under the broiler until the pudding is lightly browned.
Chill before serving.
