After reading my friend’s newly formed blog today (WhetherYouLikeItOrNOT) I decided to log in an update my own page…
To my surprise and delight the editors picks (which I normally NEVER look at) had the SEXIEST DESSERT I HAVE SEEN IN A LONG TIME….
So I present to you Rice Pudding with Strawberry Syrup from the Lovely people over at Epicurean Escapism!!!!
Coconut Rice Pudding with Strawberry Syrup
For Strawberry Syrup
1/2 cup sugar
1/8 cup water
1 cup strawberries, diced
For Rice Pudding
1 cup cooked rice
1 box (200ml) coconut cream¹
3 tbsp sugar
In a small saucepan, dissolve 1/2 cup sugar with water, and bring to a gentle boil.
Add the diced strawberries, and simmer on low heat for about 15 mins, or until the strawberries have softened and reduced to a thick syrup consistency. Leave aside to cool.
In a medium saucepan, combine cooked rice, coconut cream and 3 tbsp sugar. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat to a simmer.
Cook until about all of the coconut cream has been absorbed (or to your desired consistency), stirring from the bottom of the pan often, so that the bottom won’t burn.
To serve, mix the cooked strawberries with the rice, or serve the rice puddings topped with the cooked strawberries.
¹ If you prefer a creamier pudding, feel free to add an extra 1/2 cup of water or milk.
