Arroz De Leche - Rice With Milk Pudding
cup of white rice
cups of water
tbsp of grated lemon, lime, OR orange peel
pinch of salt
cups of milk
cup of water
cup of raisins
Combine the rice, water, cinnamon stick, grated peel and salt in pot
that has a lid. Bring to a boil uncovered. Once it stars boiling
immediately reduce to a simmer and cover. Continue cooking until all
the water has been absorbed. Cooking time depends on what type of
rice you are using. Use your regular cooking method as a guide to
determine how much water to use and how long to cook. I was
originally going to provide specific instructions, but the
opportunity for variation is just to great (instant vs converted,
short grain vs long grain, type of pot, etc). So just do what you
normally do. If this is your first time making rice, do what is says
on the box.
Once the water has been absorbed add the milk and sugar. Continue
simmering. Stir the mixture constantly until it starts to thicken.
Add the raisins and vanilla and cook for 2 more minutes. Remove from
heat and let cool about half an hour. Pace in individual serving
dishes and refrigerate. One big Tupperware container works too.
Sprinkle with cinnamon before serving.
Banana Bread (Pan de Banano)
pound (1/2 cup) butter
pound ripe bananas (2 or 3 large)
teaspoon ground cinnamon
tablespoon lemon juice
egg, well beaten
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
teaspoons baking powder
1 Soften the butter at room temperature and cream it with the
sugar in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Mash the bananas and
add to the butter and sugar mixture. Add the salt, cinnamon, lemon
juice, and egg. Sift the flour with the baking powder and fold it
into the liquid mixture. Pour the batter into a greased (9 by 5-inch)
loaf pan. Bake in a preheated moderate (350 F.) oven for 1 hour, or
until a cake tester comes out clean. Serve with honey as a cake
bread, or as a pudding with cream or ice cream.
Plátanos en Gloria (Plantains "In Glory")
3 ripe plantains
1 lb of sugar
1 stick of cinnamon
5 large peppercorns
Slice the plantains, fry, and when done place on paper to absorb the
oil. Prepare the syrup with 3 cups of water, cinnamon, peppercorns,
cloves, and a pinch of salt. Cook the syrup over a medium fire and
when it just reaches a boil, add the plantains.
