Cooked on top of the stove, this traditional pudding is delicious and very creamy. The blend of milk, raisins, vanilla and cinnamon make this recipe one of our best "comfort foods."

This is a family favorite, however instead of removing the cinnamon sticks I leave mine in till the next day (while cooling) and it gives it an authentic flavor.

    great, super easy

    audra Lynn from Fort worth, tx

    my boyfriend says his moms is they only one he will eat and it takes forever and gets messed up easily with the sugar milk combo burning, this one was so much easier he didn't know the difference the first time my rice was undercooked so i left it on low for 45 mins and it turned out great i cant wait to use it again

    Muy SABROSO!

    raymond gutierrez from ,

    My family loved it! I did not add the raisins, as suggested, since I am not fond of them, nor did I add the salt. I also used two cinnamon sticks and did not remove them. Still, it came out delicious and I have made it several times now!

    Sheila DeMatteo from HORSE SHOE, NC

    Very sweet, but good. I used 2 C. of leftover rice from the Chinese restaurant and added more ground cinnamon.

    I love this rice pudding!

    Willie Williams from Dallas, TX

    This is a rice pudding recipe that Ive used on several ocassions. Its a great side dish or a great sweet treat. I have experimented adding lemon extract and a ground cinnamon inplace of sticks with great results. I still can't get my mom's recipe exact but this an excellent substitute.

    RICE PUDDING

    Jasmine Cody from FARMINGDALE, NY

    OK -so I left out the raisins as my family is not fond of them in rice pudding. Otherwise, this was a good recipe. Tasty and a good texture. I had never made rice pudding without heavy cream and cups of sugar. The condensed milk did the trick. I refrigerated the pudding overnight and it set up well. Topped it with fresh whipped cream and sprinkled cinnamon on top of that. My grandson wanted a cherry on top - so everyone got one. NICE!

    Very Good

    Kirsten Sourbeer from ELIZABETHTOWN, PA

    I really liked this recipe - very easy and tasty. The only thing I would add to the recipe is that you need to let it sit awhile to thicken up.

    Reminded Husband of his Grandmother's!

    Veronica Henning from COLORADO SPRINGS, CO

    This recipe is the tops. My husband of nearly 4 years has told me about his grandmother's rice pudding for 3 years and I spent those 3 years looking for a recipe that sounded right to him. I found it right here and I made it 2 days later as the completion of a surprise dinner. What I thought would last the week, he devoured in 2 days! This is a keeper and my hubby is thrilled that I can make something just like his granmother did when he was a child. I snuck a small bowl myself to see if I did it right, it was great!

    I've tried making many types of rice puddings on and off. I've never quite been happy with the texture. I thought that I should try this one since many of the ingredients were similar. Now I no longer have to look @ this item and buy it. This is very good. Thanks

    I had an event for senior citizens and made this recipe X 7 for a party. Everyone loved it. This was the first time I made Rice pudding from scratch and I was very supprised how easy it was to make. I would recommend not making the amount that I made at one time. I will make this more often very good... Thank You...
