Forget egg yolks and water baths. This is a simple and superb rice pudding that uses only milk, sugar, cream, rice, salt and your choice of flavorings: rum, almond extract, vanilla, orange zest, cardamom, nutmeg, anything else you can dream up. Rice Pudding With Golden Raisins - NYT Cooking
Rice To Riches (NYC) The store is set up like a traditional scoop shop, but rice pudding replaces ice cream. There’s the “Old Fashioned Romance” (traditional rice pudding, nothing on it), as well as quirkier flavors like “Keylime Love Letter,” or “Sex Drugs and Rocky Road.” And, if you really can’t get enough, you can take home an 80-ounce container for just $40.
