I love Rice Pudding – Big does not. Needless to say, it is usually something I don’t get to eat very often.
When I was asked to try a recipe from the new cookbook, The Art of Eating through the Zombie Apocalypse: A Cookbook and Culinary Survival Guide, I was excited to see a rice pudding recipe! Don’t tell Big, but I fibbed a little and said I “had” to make and review this recipe! Shhhh….. the secret is between us!
Before I get to how to make the Nice Rice Pudding and tell you how delicious it is, I want to take a few moments to tell you how much I enjoyed this book. This recipe book is really a survivalist guide. Of course you want to read it if you are a fan of all things Zombie! You also want to read it if you are fan of camping, homesteading and just plain learning new things!
I am not sure that I would ever really need to know how to make a Solar Still, but I do think that it is a great idea to learn how to purify water. The book also talks about hunting, foraging, fermenting, making jam and more. I will be honest with you, there are so many great and practical tips in this book, that you need to purchase it!
- 1 c condensed milk,reserving the rest of the can for drizzling
- 2 - 12 ounce cans evaporated milk or coconut milk*
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 small cinnamon sticks or 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- pinch of salt
- 1/3 c. uncooked white rice
- 1/2 cup, dried cherries, cranberries or raisins
- 1/2 c toasted grated or flaked coconut, for garnish
- 1/2 c roughly chopped toasted nuts, for garnish
- Set up the Hibachi Grill or other heat source to 300F
- Whisk together the condensed milk, evaporated milk, vanilla, spices and salt in a large mixing bowl.
- Add the rice to a lightly greased baking pan. Sprinkle with dried fruit, if using
- Add the liquid mixture, stir, and cover the pan with foil
- Bake for 30 minutes, remove the foil and stir. Replace the foil cover and bake another 30 minutes.
- Remove the foil and stir again, check for donees. The pudding is done when the rice is plump and tender - it should still be fairly fluid because it will thicken considerably while cooling. If not done by this point, bake in additional 10-minute increments until ready.
- Let cool and thicken for another 30 minutes. Before serving, drizzle with condensed milk and sprinkle on the toasted coconut or nuts, if using.
- *I used 1 can evaporated milk and 1 can coconut milk
