MAMA'S RICE PUDDING

 

  • Cooking Time: 90 minutes
  • Servings: 8-10
  • Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup rice
  • 1 quart milk (whole milk is best, but I've used skim)
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup raisins (optional)

Directions

  • If using raisins, cover them with hot water to plump them up. Set aside.
  • In a medium, non-stick saucepan, bring water to boil.
  • Add rice and cook until water is absorbed (about 7 minutes).
  • Add milk and butter. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
  • Lower heat to simmer, cover and cook for 90 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove from heat and add the eggs, sugar, vanilla and raisins.
  • Serve warm or cold sprinkled with cinnamon.

Notes

Handed down from my mother, this rice pudding brings back many happy memories for me.
