All I want to do is kick back in a pair of super comfy lounge pants, sip hot tea, and either catch up on my shows or get invested in a good book. Luckily, we’re halfway through the week, and that means I’m one step closer to the weekend so I can finally relax.

In the mean time, I’m leaving you with this earl grey rice pudding to indulge in and get you through the rest of the week. Because I’m always ready for a midweek pick me up.

I’ve been craving rice pudding lately. I have no idea why. But I’ve been craving it. That and tapioca pudding. So what better way to satisfy a craving than to make it myself?

I wanted to play with the flavor so I thought I could take the classic rice pudding and infuse it with earl grey, one of my favorite tea. So just imagine your favorite classic dessert, but with all the flavors of earl grey. Seriously. I can’t resist the taste of it.

This earl grey rice pudding is ridiculously addictive. Spoonful after spoonful is simply not enough. It’s strong in flavor, creamy, and just soooo good. I can’t wait for you to try it!

In a medium sized pot, combine the rice and earl grey tea over medium heat until simmering. Lower the heat to medium low and cook until the rice is almost done cooking, about 20 minutes. Add milk, granulated sugar, and salt, and continue to cook for another 20 minutes or so. If the pudding looks too thick or dry, add more milk until desired consistency.

In a small bowl, whisk together the rest of the milk and the egg until combined. Add a fourth cup of the hot rice to the bowl and whisk until combined. The hot rice tempers the egg so that it doesn’t cook when added to the pot.

Slowly pour the egg mixture into the pot and continue to cook until it reaches the desired consistency. Add more sugar and vanilla extract if desired.

    Growing up, I hated rice pudding. I had some really good rice pudding a few years back and was surprised how delicious it was, when you add sugar….and whipping cream….and vanilla. Yumm. Allan
