I was going through the cabinets today moving stuff around and came across an extra bag of rice. It is cold here so I figured I would make some Rice Pudding.
I honestly do not know where I found this recipe, it is hand written in a journal of recipes I kept when I was a teenager. All I do remember that this Rice Pudding was my Dad's favorite
So here is the recipe, it is cooked on top of the stove in a double boiler. I don't own one of these so I used a Pyrex bowl and a 2 quart sauce pan and a lid that fit over the bowl.
Creamy Rice Pudding
1 cup water
1/2 cup rice
2 1/2 cups 2 percent or whole milk
1/4 of raisins or dried cranberries (optional)
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
In the top of a double boiler, ( I did this in the pot first then washed the pot and added more water and bought it back to a simmer and placed bowl on top with lid) Bring water to a boil, stir in rice cover and simmer 15 minutes or until water i absorbed. Stir in milk. Set over simmering water, cover and stirring occasionally, cook 45 minutes. Stir in raisins, cook 10 minutes or until rice is very soft.
Meanwhile in a medium bowl beat eggs lightly with sugar. Stir a large spoonful or two of hot rice into egg mixture, blend well. Stir egg mixture into rice stirring constantly. Cook about 8 to 12 more minutes covered until mixture thickens. Add cinnamon.
You can either serve this warm or cold. We ate some warm and I put the rest into my little Fire king Peach Lustre custard cups for later.
This recipe just reminds me of home and my Dad.
So I hope you will give this a try and warm up your families day with some homemade puddin.
