I was raised on this rice pudding. Us kids would beg Mom to make extra rice when she made it so we could have this wonderful Rice Pudding Delight.
Always turns out smooth and creamy, just perfect!
Wash rice; place in 2 quart dish. Add sugar, butter, salt and cinnamon. Bake in a very slow oven (275-300 degrees F.) for 3 hours, stirring 3 times during first hour to prevent rice from settling.
Gradually stir milk and egg into pudding mix in saucepan. Add rice and raisins. Stir over medium heat until mixture just comes to a boil. Cool 5 minutes, stirring twice.
This pudding recipe is also delicious and preferred by many cooks because it does not require careful attention, as no eggs are used.
In top of double boiler, cook raw rice in water until soft. Add to the soft rice, evaporated milk, regular milk and sugar. Cook mixture so it boils for 5 minutes. Top with fruit and serve.

I am looking for an easy, creamy rice pudding recipe. All the recipes I have tried are too dry to enjoy. Thank you in advance for any help.

1 cup minute rice
1 tsp/ vanilla
2 1/2 c. milk
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. eggbeaters
In a saucepan, combine rice, milk, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat, simmer 15 to twenty min. Stir occasionally. Slowly pour hot rice mixture into eggs, beating well. Fold in raisins if you like them. Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon. I make this frequently. Hope it works for you.
I would like the recipe for this pudding. I've checked the internet and can't find the exact one I am looking for. The rice turns out all caramel colored, but it doesn't have any brown sugar or cinnamon in it.
The ingredients are white rice, milk, water, raisins, white sugar and baking soda. I don't have the measurements though and I can't figure out why it turns a caramel color. You bake it in the oven. That's all I know. Doesn't anyone have this recipe? I don't believe any eggs were used. Thanks. GailDarlene

Make a rice pudding the normal way, add raisins. These are what turn the pudding a caramel colour. You don,t need to add anything extra. If you make it in a slow cooker this also makes it extra caramelly and creamy. I hope this helps. Good luck. Jan UK
I have actually found the answer to my query, so I thought I would share it with all those who tried to help me. The caramel Recipe is:
2 cups milk
2 cups water
1 cup sugar(white)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup rice ( I used instant, but long grein or anykind you usually use in baked rice pudding is fine.
raisins ( as many as you want or omit if you dont want.)
stir all together. and pour into casserole dish ,make sure that its large enough so pudding wonted boil over.
Bake at 400 degrees for 1 1/2 hrs. stirring after each half hour. If you never liked rice pudding but love caramel you will love this recipe. Thanks for all your help. GailDarlene
I am looking for an easy recipe for stovetop rice pudding.
2 cups water and 1 cup long grained rice/cook till rice is soft and absorbed. Add 1 can evaporated milk to 2 cans water/1 cup sugar, 1 c raisins, 1 T cinnamon. Cook till thick. When partly cooled add 1 t vanilla. This is my Moms tried and true recipe all of us sisters use. If you think it's too thick you can add some more regular milk to desired consistency...as this sits, it drinks up the liquid.
I am looking for a very simple stovetop rice pudding recipe.

Cook the rice as usual but add a little more water so that the rice becomes softer. Then add sugar, cinnamon or nutmeg to taste. Add enough milk (evaporated is really good) to make it to the texture you like and you have an easy rice pudding. Maybe not as creamy as regular rice pudding, but faster and still pretty tasty. You could also add raisins or other dried fruit to the rice while it is cooking.
