My Favorite Overnight Breakfast

I usually don’t do overnight breakfasts  –because they’re almost always oatmeal– and the promise of oatmeal doesn’t make me spring out of bed. Actually, hardly anything prompts me to spring out of bed, but I found one. Indian rice pudding.

In 2016 I determined the official Jupiter House recipe modifications (double cardamom, light sugar, no raisins), but I don’t make it often because Mister Jupiter rarely eats sweets at home. But I love sweets. Enter the overnight mug for my single serving rice pudding.

One night I was putting away some leftover rice and suddenly thought about Indian rice pudding. Mister declined any, so I worked on a single serving version, and I love it. Here’s my quick recipe, I hope you enjoy it too.
