Why I Love This Recipe

This is a stovetop rice pudding recipe that I have concocted after two years of trying different recipes and playing with ratios. It is my personal favorite rice pudding--thick, creamy, and simple to make. This makes a lot of pudding, but is perfect for using leftover rice!

Ingredients You'll Need

3.75 cups cooked white rice
1 cup sugar
4.5 cups milk, divided
.5 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 tablespoon cinnamon
.5 tablespoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon butter


In a large saucepan, combine rice, sugar, 4 cups of the milk, and salt. Cook over medium heat until thick and creamy, stirring periodically. This should take 10-20 minutes.

Stir in eggs and remaining 1/2 cup milk. Cook for an additional two minutes or so, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, spices, and butter.

Cool, serve, and enjoy!

Questions, Comments & Reviews

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I have been all over the internet trying to find good rice pudding recipes. Most were too runny for my tastes or involved a bunch of ingredients or steps I didn't think were necessary... This one is perfect! It was super easy and is nice and thick.
