Chris’ Favourite Rice Pudding

Let me start by saying Yuck!  I hate Rice Pudding but Chris loves it, so on occasion when I am feeling especially nice, I make him a batch of it.  To me rice should have veggies in it and soya sauce or any other “savoury” option, not cream and sugar and raisins lol!

So, I will tell you how I make Chris’ favourite rice pudding!

And note, Rice pudding under no circumstances, takes a good picture!

This is what I used to make it.

To start with I cooked the rice (3/4 Cup), according to the package directions, in the microwave.

In a large pot, add the 2 cups milk, 1 cup 18% cream, 1/2 cup white sugar, 2 Tbsp. brown sugar, 2 beaten eggs, 1 Tbsp. Butter/Margarine, 1 Tsp. vanilla, salt and the cooked rice.

Bring this mixture to a boil over medium high heat and then let simmer for about 15 minutes on medium heat until the “pudding” starts to thicken.  Don’t over cook it or it will end up the texture of wallpaper paste!

It still needs to look a bit runny, for lack of a better word, as it will set as it cools.

Remove from heat. Stir in raisins (Chris says Rice Pudding HAS to have raisins) and cinnamon and mix until blended.

Let sit 5 minutes.  Serve warm at this point if you like it warm, or transfer to bowl, cover and refrigerate until chilled and serve.

Sprinkle with cinnamon when serving.

  1. I love rice pudding! My mother used to make it a lot for dessert – it was inexpensive and it makes a lot so it was perfect for our large family! My husband doesn’t like it so I don’t really make it anymore. I need to find a rice pudding buddy so that I can share with them!! 😀

    • I’m with your husband lol. I don’t like it at all but Chris loves it so once in a while I make it for him as a treat. To me, rice is supposed to have soya sauce or teriyaki or something like that, not a custard! I hope you find someone that will share a batch with you!
