Sometimes, you want a fancy dessert. Sometimes, you want something comforting and homey. This rice pudding recipe is both things rolled into one. A comforting and homey rice pudding, fancied up with a lemon-vanilla caramel sauce. The dessert looks very complicated, but it was really easy to make and the rice pudding and caramel can both be made a few days before you are going to serve it. This dessert would be perfect for a shower or after a brunch. Even though it seems like it would be rich and heavy, the raspberries and the lemon in the caramel make it very light tasting and fresh.
I usually make a baked version of rice pudding, but this stovetop version is just so creamy. It uses Arborio rice, which is the rice that you use for risotto, it becomes creamy without using actual cream. If you do not have raspberries in season or for whatever reason, blueberries would be a perfect substitute. Lemon and blueberries are made for each other. Another thought would to substitute the lemon juice in the caramel for fresh orange juice. I bet that would be amazing also.
