Rice Pudding

I LOVE blessing my family with a sweet treat (as long as they've eaten a good dinner, of course!) We had kind of a laid back afternoon at home today, so I tested a recipe for rice pudding with my oldest girl today. Another thing I love is exposing them to new foods, and rice pudding was new for all of us. I used this recipe from I added just a little bit more of the good stuff to make it extra delicious! (And it worked!) The adjusted recipe is as follows:

Rice Pudding

  • 3/4 cup uncooked white rice
  • 2 cups milk, divided
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1.5 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a medium saucepan, bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil. Add rice and stir. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. In another saucepan, combine 1 1/2 cups cooked rice, 1 1/2 cups milk, sugar and salt. Cook over medium heat until thick and creamy, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup milk, beaten egg and raisins. Cook 3 minutes more, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and stir in butter and vanilla. Serve warm.
