sometimes you just need comfort
After all these weeks of baking I thought we’d keep shit simple and make an easy, comfort food classic: ride pudding. EXCEPT we’re not taking any condensed milk shortcuts here. The longer simmer time helps the rice release lots of starch to thicken the pudding, creating that signature velvety texture without tons of fat or gelling agents. Plus, it warms your place up and makes your kitchen smell amazing. All you hafta do is stir the pot every now and then. Lord knows you do enough pot stirring every year by telling your conspiracy-loving uncle how pigeons are controlled by the government. You’ve got practice, all you need is dessert.
