Wheat Pudding or Trigo con Leche

This recipe remind me one of my aunts, any time I went to visit her for vacations, she made this,, I have to say was  delicious, with a  few small changes, my version came out soo good.

  • 2 cups of wheat
  • 4 cups of evaporated milk (could use soy milk or coconut)
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 1/2 cup of raisins
  • 1 teaspoon of clove powder
  • 1 cup of sugar (you may not use it all)
  • Salt

  1. Soak the wheat in 6 cups of water for at least two hours (you can leave it overnight in the fridge).
  2. Place wheat and water from soaking and cinnamon in a heavy pot and boil over medium heat for 5 minutes (add an extra cup of water if it looks like it might need it.)
  3. Add the milk, clove powder, raisins, a pinch of salt, and sugar to taste.
  4. Cook over low heat until it acquires a pudding-like consistency (10 mins aprox), stirring frequently to prevent it from burning.
  5. Could serve as breakfast or  as dessert.
