This dessert is delicious with Spanish dessert wines.



  1. Place the water, rice, cinnamon stick, lemon zest, salt and sugar in a saucepan or pot and bring to a boil.
  2. When boiling, lower heat, cover and let simmer until the water is nearly all absorbed (keep checking every minute, so as not to burn).
  3. Add the milk when most of the water has absorbed and continue cooking until the rice is extra tender and “bloated”.
  4. Stir and the texture should be creamy.
  5. Add a splash more milk if necessary (whole fat).
  6. Remove the cinnamon stick.
  7. Serve the arroz con leche warm (or chilled), and garnish with cinnamon powder on top and cinnamon sticks on the side.
