Happy Friday, Peeps! Hey, did anyone else here watch the Master Chef Junior finale? Has anyone else been craving rice pudding since Andrew whipped up his version on the finale using orzo?

rice pudding rum sauce recipe
Even if you don’t watch the show, an old fashioned dessert such as rice pudding really hits the spot on a never-ending winters day. These days, that’s any day!
Rice pudding reminds of my mom. It’s not something she made often, but it was one of my favorite things that she did make. I like mine with lots of raisins, much to Shay’s dismay, but if you aren’t a fan, just skip ’em. It’ll still be tasty! The rum sauce is all me – something about rum sauce reminds me of.. cold days, warm hearts.
The shorter the grain, the creamier the pudding. For an explanation of short versus long rice, go here!
Rice Pudding *
Pudding
3/4 cup uncooked white rice                                  1 egg, beaten
1 can evaporated milk                                            2/3 cup raisins
1/2 cup milk                                                            1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup white sugar                                                 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
Directions
Bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil in a saucepan; stir rice into boiling water. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.
In a clean saucepan, combine 1 1/2 cups cooked rice, evaporated milk, sugar and salt. Cook over medium heat until thick and creamy, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in milk, beaten egg, and raisins; cook 2 minutes more, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla.
Rum Butter Sauce  **
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/3 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup rum
1/4 cup golden raisins, if desired
In 1 1/2-quart saucepan, bring rum to boil over medium heat. Allow to cook for 2 minutes. Mix in remaining ingredients. Return to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil 3 to 4 minutes, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened.
Drizzle over cooled pudding and serve immediately.
May your weekend be warm and balmy!
