Did you mark your calendar for National Rice Pudding Day on the 9th of August? We’re celebrating the beloved comfort food that’s eaten all over the world by offering you this wonderful vanilla rice pudding recipe with Difference Coffee caramel sauce. The recipe was created just for us by our friend and Michelin two-star chef Mickael Vijanen.
Vijanen’s Vanilla Rice Pudding recipe couldn’t be simpler – just slowly simmer and stir your choice of round-grain rice with sugar, vanilla and milk in a pan until it’s thick and creamy. The gourmet touch comes with folding a sweetened whipped cream into the pudding. Finally, it’s drizzled with a beautiful home-made caramel infused with our Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee.

130g caster or brown sugar
