Rice Pudding Recipe
This delicious, wholesome, stove top Rice Pudding is quick and easy to make. It delivers consistent results.
Rice is a healthy food choice. It is a grain that is sodium and fat free, and fortified with vitamins and iron. However, DO NOT wash rice before cooking. Also, do not drain it after cooking, because you could lose some of the valuable nutrients.
Whole milk contains an abundance of calcium and is fortified with essential vitamin D.
Raisins are a low salt food, fat and cholesterol free. They contain potassium, iron, some calcium and also healthy fiber.
RICE PUDDING RECIPE
5 cups whole milk
1 cup uncooked rice*
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup raisins
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1/2 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Whipped Cream (optional)
*Parboiled long-grained rice (will state on rice package) gives the best results for this recipe, in my experience. Non-parboiled rice takes longer to cook.
Heat milk in a large saucepan on low heat. When warm, stir in rice, sugar, raisins, butter, vanilla, and cinnamon. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Cover with tight-fitting lid to prevent steam from escaping. Cook until mixture starts to boil, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking to pan.
When mixture starts to boil, begin timing and simmer 25 minutes. Remove from heat. Let stand in pan, covered 5 minutes.
Pour into a serving dish to prevent any further cooking. Pudding will thicken as it cools.
When thoroughly cooled, place in refrigerator to chill. Serve topped with whipped cream, if desired.
