A Rice Pudding Recipe Worth Trying

You may think rice pudding isn’t the most popular dessert these days, but that’s because you haven’t tried a good one. Together with my cousin Kelly Ort, we’ve come up with a recipe that will change your mind.

Start with two cups of cooked rice. I prefer using regular cooked rice rather than cooking it in milk, as I have a secret ingredient that takes this pudding to the next level. That secret ingredient is sweetened condensed milk. Beat an egg and mix it with some of the condensed milk to temper it before adding it to the warm rice. This step ensures that the egg doesn’t curdle or cook when mixed with the warm rice. Once tempered, pour the egg and condensed milk mixture over the rice.

Baking and Serving

Traditionally, rice pudding is baked in the oven, so follow suit and bake it in a small casserole dish or individual ramekins. While baking, the egg will create a custard-like texture.

To enhance the flavor, add some raisins to the mixture. Trust me, they make all the difference. Once the pudding is cooked, sprinkle some turbinado sugar on top for that caramelized goodness. This sugar is perfect for topping desserts like cookies or crème brûlée.

The Best Part

After a short baking time, your rice pudding will be ready to serve. The result is a thick, creamy, and delicious dessert that will bring back memories of old-fashioned comfort. You can enjoy it warm or chilled, but personally, I love it warm.

So, next time you have leftover rice, don’t throw it away. Turn it into a delightful rice pudding that will have everyone begging for seconds. And if you want the perfect measurements and more tips, hop over to El Reno Ok for the full recipe.

Remember, good food brings people together, so grab a spoon and dig into this delightful dessert. Enjoy, y’all!
