Caramel coconut creamed rice

Caramel coconut creamed rice


Serves 8


  • 1/2 cup (90g) arborio rice
  • 1/3 cup (65g) dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (500ml) full fat coconut milk
  • 1 cup (250ml) full cream regular milk
  • 2 egg yolks


Preheat oven to 180°C  (160°C fan-forced).
Place all ingredients, except for the egg yolks, in a medium sized saucepan over low heat, whisk to combine.
Increase heat to medium, to allow the mixture to come to a gentle bubble. Then turn down to low again and simmer for 5 minutes, or until mixture has thickened.
Remove from heat and to cool for 20 minutes, then quickly whisk through the egg yolks.
Transfer to a 20cm x 20cm square baking dish, and bake for 40 minutes, or until a gooey caramel top forms. Serve immediately.
