Not Just a Desert – Rice Pudding

Rice Pudding, in one form or another, can be found everywhere around the world, with a vast array of  different styles and methods of preparation. The variant I grew up with is a custard style pudding made with milk, eggs, sugar, and spices. This recipe is what I normally prepare, although I have been known to make a few variations depending on availability of ingredients.




  1. Add milk and rice to a medium sauce pot. Stirring often, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a low simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring often.
  2. In a bowel add egg with brown sugar and cinnamon. Whisk until mixed.
  3. While whisking, slowly add some of rice mixture, 1 Tbsp at a time. Add approximately eight tablespoons or 1/2 cup.
  4. Add Egg mixture into rice mixture, stir vigorously until combined. Simmer for approximately  10 more minutes, until the desired consistency is achieved.
  5. Remove form heat and add vanilla and raisins. Mix well.
  6. Can be served hot or cold.
