Arroz con leche

Arroz con leche is a traditional Spanish dessert, and it’s my mother’s favorite. It’s an easy dessert to make but very often it’s done badly in restaurants and at home. Done right it’s just heaven and it brings me back to my childhood.

These are the ingredients (you can halve the ingredients if you want to make less):

  • 3 liters of fresh whole milk
  • 230 grams of round rice (washed twice under the tap and drained)
  • 250 grams of caster (white) sugar
  • 2 sticks (aprox. 10 cm each) of cinnamon
  • Strips of lemon peel from one lemon (use a tomato peeler to make thin strips)
  • 50 grams of butter diced
  • 2 egg yolks, lightly beaten and dissolved with 4 tablespoons of cold milk
  • powdered cinnamon for serving
