  • 2 2/3 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup long grain rice
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • pinch salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon


  • In a medium heavy bottomed saucepan set over medium heat, add the milk, rice, butter, and salt. Bring mixture to a boil, then cover and reduce to a simmer. Let cook for 15 minutes.
  • In a medium size mixing bowl whisk together an egg, brown sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon.
  • Temper the eggs, by slowly pouring the hot milk from the rice mixture into the bowl, and stirring continuously. Then pour the warm egg mixture back into the pan and return to the heat. Whisk frequently and continue cooking for 5-8 minutes until mixture thickens and rice is soft. Take care not to curdle the mixture.
  • Remove from the heat and serve warm with a dash of cinnamon.
