Our little one wanted some dessert the other day and there was no time to make ice cream, cake or baked custards. Instead there was some rice from dinner. The recipe was very simple and she just added some milk to the rice and boiled till soft. Then she added some sugar, one egg yolk and a splash of vanilla. It was very simple yet delicious and she was very happy that she made this simple dessert all by herself! She even copied the recipe so she could easily make herself a dessert when I wasn't home.
Desserts don't need to be rich or heavenly to please kids. Sometimes plain foods we eat daily work very well. And of course a little fun !
