Easy Recipe Rice Pudding

Rice Pudding

Rice Pudding

Short grain rice like Arborio or Calrose rice make the best pudding but keep an eye on the pan as this dish can easily spill over on the stove. The burner should be just warm enough to bubble. This pudding will thicken as it cools but itโ€™s best served warm. - Jenny Jones

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Makes: 2 servings... okay, sometimes one.

Rice Pudding


  • 3 cups milk (1%, 2%, or whole milk)

  1. Place milk, rice, sugar and cinnamon stick in a medium saucepan.
  2. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Reduce heat to low. Cook, uncovered, at a gentle boil for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until rice is thick and creamy.
  3. Remove cinnamon stick and stir in vanilla.
  4. Get your fuzzy slippers and a big spoon.

    Hi Jenny, this recipe seems easy and fun. Just 2 questions, 1: Can we use basmati rice or Singaporean rice instead of the type you mentioned?
    2: If we use cinnamon powder instead of the stick, how much should we use it and in what manner?

    • Jenny

      I am not familiar with Singaporean rice but I think you can use just about any rice for pudding. Cinnamon does not have to be added so I suggest cooking it without the cinnamon and you can sprinkle a little on the top when serving.
