If you've never had Rice Pudding, you don't know what you're missing. If your Grandma or Mom used to make it and you forgot all about that, this recipe is for you. Most people say "I remember that from when I was little, or that tastes just like my Grandma used to make". A keeper for sure. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
Here's what you need:
1 cup rice, I use a medium grain white
3-1/2 cups milk, I use 1% but 2% or whole will be fine
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. butter, unsalted
1 tsp. vanilla extract
In a 3 qt or bigger stock pot pour all the ingredients and stir well to combine.
It takes a minute to stir in all the cinnamon, but it will stir in. Once everything is combined, put a lid on the pot and bring to a boil. KEEP AN EYE ON IT; IT WILL BOIL OVER WITHOUT ANY NOTICE.
Once it is boiling, give it a good stir and place the lid back on and reduce to low and simmer for 45 minutes. or until it is thick and creamy. Stirring every 10 minutes or so. I turned mine to a little above low in the last 10 minutes.
Serve warm. Super yummy!
Serves 4 - 6
