Total time: 30 minutes | Serves 4
  • 1/2 cup rice
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

Step 1Place the rice and milk in a heavy-bottomed saucepan with a lid. Bring to a boil; watch until this happens. Turn the heat to simmer, cover the pot and check it after about 10 minutes. Gently stir the rice with a fork. You want the rice to absorb all of the milk and get tender in the process. This shouldn't take more than 20 to 25 minutes. Check often and be patient. This first time will make next time easy. When the rice is tender, remove the saucepan from the heat. Let it cool.

Step 2Pour the cream into a mixing bowl and add the sugar, vanilla and salt, stir and taste. Add another spoonful of sugar if it isn't sweet enough for you. Beat the cream until it holds stiff peaks. Stir the cream into the rice. Serve in small bowls and drizzle a little maple syrup on top. Heat the syrup first, if you'd like.
