Old Fashioned Rice Pudding is tasty, comforting and best of all inexpensive!
Today I’m going to share with you all a delicious and comforting recipe for old fashioned rice pudding. I hope you all enjoy it!
Friday morning I was feeling absolutely horrible. Unfortunately I still do. I have a awful cold that won’t seem to go away.
As nice as it would be to just stay in bed all day Friday and do nothing I couldn’t because my two little ones still have to eat. Unfortunately the kitchen was pretty bare because I hadn’t went grocery shopping in awhile but I had some basic ingredients like eggs, milk, rice etc.
I instantly thought of old fashioned rice pudding. It’s delicious and comforting. Just what I needed! I have another rice pudding recipe on here that you make like. It’s called Arroz con leche. It’s a Mexican version of rice pudding and doesn’t take as long to cook.
Both versions of rice pudding are great it just depends on what you’re in the mood for.
Now I’m gonna tell you how to make this
Old Fashioned Rice Pudding
While this recipe takes longer to cook than arroz con leche it is just as easy to make!
I start with 1 cup of dry long grain white rice that’s been cooked and cooled. To make sure the rice pudding doesn’t end up sticking to the casserole dish I like to butter the bottom of it.
Then I transfer the rice to the dish and spread it out and top it with raisins (optional)
Then in a large mixing bowl beat the eggs well then add the milk, sugar and vanilla and stir well. Now pour this mixture over the rice.
Now its time to bake it at 325 for about 2 hours or until it is lightly browned and set. After baking make sure to garnish it with ground cinnamon and nutmeg.
That’s all there is to it. It’s very easy! I really hope you all will give this recipe a try. I really like it. The great thing about it is you can serve it as breakfast like I did or as a dessert!
My husband liked this so much he says he wants me to teach him how to make it lol. If you all give it a try let me know how it turned out please.
Thanks for visiting, I’ll see you all soon!
