The secret to any rice pudding is the timing of the sugar. It must not be added until the rice is thoroughly cooked otherwise it will forever remain hard. Those who did not like this recipe should test the rice for tenderness before adding the sugar in the final stage of the recipe.
My daughter found this recipe on the site and decided to make it last night. Erica, I wish I could give this more than five stars because it was incredible! My dad worked for Tuscan Dairy for fifty years in Union, N.J. and they made an amazing rice pudding, which I've never been able to even nearly duplicate. Thanks to you, this is pretty close! I omitted the raisins and used skim milk because it was the only thing I had in the house. The next time Ty gets a desire to make this great dessert, I'll have her use evaporated skim milk as it really replicates a light cream or a whole milk. Thanks so much!
Very easy. The first time I made this recipe I made it with long grain rice (not knowing the difference between long, med, and short) and half and half. Second time I made it with medium grain rice, skim milk and less sugar. The medium grain rice made a huge difference in the end product, do not make the mistake of using long grain rice the pudding will just not be the same! Also, no need to use half and half it was just as good with the skim milk---save yourself the calories! I liked it better with a little less sugar.
Erica is my new hero! This is, without a doubt, the BEST and EASIEST rice pudding recipe I have ever made. I followed the suggestions of others and used medium grain rice and half the sugar called for. I didn't put the sugar into the pudding until it was the consistency I wanted. Remember to put some of the warm mixture into the egg and milk before SLOWLY adding it to your pot so you don't end up with "egg-drop" in your rice pudding! If you've never made rice pudding before or are looking for an excellent, easy recipe, this one is for you! Thanks, again, Erica. :)
I had a taste for a really good rice pudding, and this one is a keeper!!! I to added cinnamon,vanilla, and nutmeg, i also added a little more sugar! I added the salt to my boiling water that I cooked my rice in. Rice cooked without salt is hard to season. I will make this again. Thanks!!!!!!!
This was absolutely delicious! I never made homemade rice pudding before, but I had all the ingredients and some left over rice. First of all, I buttered my rice when it was cooking in step 1. This eliminates the need for it in the later part of step 2 and lends to a richer pudding. I generally watch the fat in my recipes, so I made mine with skim milk, which added another 6 or 7 minutes on to the total cooking time. I also increased the sugar a little, as I preferred it a bit sweeter (it's a matter of preference). But the main key is to add some of cooking pudding (from the pot) to a seperate bowl with the egg and milk mixture. This brings the egg and milk mixture to a warmer, more consistant temperature to what's in the pot and prevents the egg from scrambling. After about 3 minutes mixing them together in the bowl, slowly add the egg and milk mixture to the pot and continue cooking for about 2 minutes, until thickened. Sprinkle it with a bit of cinnamon before serving. This pudding is delicious hot or cold. I will be making this recipe often. Thanks!
Wonderful recipe. My 3-year-old just loves it, and it turned out nice and creamy. I was skeptical, as I've always made rice pudding by cooking the rice in the milk, but it came out great-tasting, and the big bonus is that it's a great use for leftover rice! And it doesn't make too much. One warning--3/4 cup uncooked rice yields more than 1-1/2 cups cooked. I used only 1-1/2 cups cooked, and think that any more would've taken away the creaminess.
rice pudding is a tradition in my family...the men especially love it. i'm in the 4th generation of the family and this was my first attempt at making it on my own. it turned out marvelous!!! beats KozyShack brand all to bits...I doubled the recipe, used one pot, and added the vanilla and some cinnamon during the second milk addition. turned out super creamy and just sweet enough! I left out the raisins simply cuz I don't have any right now, but I will make it again and put them in! definitely will add this recipe to my collection of favorites. thanks!!
