Arroz Doce / Sweet Rice
- Category: Desserts
2 cups of white rice, preferably medium grain
2 cups of sugar
2 cups of water
6 cups of whole milk
4 tablespoons of salted butter
Peel of 2 lemons
10 egg yokes *-/+ to your discretion.
Cinnamon to decorate
In a separate bowl you’ll need to separate your eggs, since you will only be using the egg yokes. Beat the egg yokes and once the rice is cooked, you will add a couple of heaping spoonful’s of rice to the egg yokes, one spoonful at a time. Then you will incorporate the egg mixture back into the rice pan and cook for another 5-10 minutes so that the eggs can cook.
• It is very important to follow these steps and not jut put the egg yokes into the rice. If you do the eggs will cook and you will have scrabbled eggs.
Last step is to pour rice pudding in serving dishes and decorate with cinnamon.
