Rice pudding is one of my favorite desserts since I was little. I love this thick, rich and creamy dessert and can eat it anytime, any day. It doesn’t have to be a special occasion.

Rice Pudding the Traditional Way

We normally make rice pudding the traditional way of cooking on the stove top. Rice and milk combination constantly needs to be stirred to make sure the milk won’t stick to the surface of the sauce pan.

It takes a while for this pudding to fully cook, plus you have to keep an eye on the pan to make sure the bottom of the pan doesn’t burn. It feels like such a luxury when this pudding would finally be ready after it was cooked with such painstakingly effort.

When we decided to make this rice pudding this time, we thought of trying to make it in slow cooker as an experiment. I had no idea how this whole experiment would result and we were ready for the worst recipe ever 🙂

To our surprise it came out really really well. We never expected it to taste so good. We like the very basic version of this pudding, no flavors of any kind. You can add vanilla or cinnamon to make it little flavorful.

How to make Rich and Creamy Rice Pudding

As you look at the ingredients and directions to make this dessert, you will be surprised how easy it is to make.

We basically combined uncooked rice, milk and water in a preheated slow cooker, set it on low. After around 7 – 8 hours it was ready. I added sugar and set it to cook some more to make sure sugar was properly combined with rest of the ingredients.

The first few times we made it, I used sweetened condensed milk. It didn’t take that long but it was little too sweet for my taste. I had to add milk to reduce to sweetness but that would mess up my favorite consistency of the rice pudding.

We normally use short grain rice for rice pudding. Apparently, it contains more starch that helps make the pudding thicker.

Once the rice pudding is cooked, you can garnish it with raisins, crushed almonds, saffron or any of your favorite toppings. Serve it hot or cold. It tastes delicious either way.

I love my rice pudding thicker and creamier. Sometimes I like it little watery so I add milk to my bowl. If you want it even thicker, you can replace half of the milk with condensed milk.
