When I saw that my sweetie Lis was hosting the latest edition of the Weekend Cookbook Challenge (originated by Sara of i like to cook), I knew that I had to find time to participate.

Between work and the Easter holiday, this past month has been a busy one to say the least. But I did some planning and managed to find some time to try a recipe that I’ve been longing to try for some time: Rice Pudding with Dulce de Leche.

The idea for this dessert came from a book that I adore called Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey: Desserts for the Serious Sweet Tooth by Jill O’Connor. The book is beyond gorgeous and there’s a recipe in there for rice pudding with dulce de leche and cream.

I’d wanted to try the recipe for awhile and decided that this was the perfect occasion. While I borrowed the idea, however, I used my own go-to rice pudding recipe as the basis.

The theme for this WCC was to prepare a recipe using a pressure cooker, dutch oven or crockpot. I decided to use a dutch oven to prepare the rice pudding because we recently bought a little one that is just too adorable! Sometimes I’ll just put it on the stove and look at it because it’s so darn cute!

Once the rice pudding was cooked, I swirled in a huge dollop of dulce de leche and enjoyed a lovely treat.

I hope you get to enjoy it too!

Ciao!
