When it begins to boil reduce heat to low and simmer until the rice is tender, about 20-25 minutes. Stir frequently to prevent sticking. Remove from heat. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together egg and brown sugar until well combined. Using a glass measuring cup or heat resistant measuring spoon remove ½ cup of the hot rice mixture from the saucepan. Add it one tablespoon at a time to the egg mixture whisking vigorously (if you whisk to slowly you will cook the egg) until it is all incorporated. Add egg mixture back into the saucepan of rice and milk. Stir well and cook over low heat, for 10 -15 minutes ( until thickened). Keep the heat low, you Do Not want to bring it to a boil again. Add vanilla and stir well. Remove from heat and stir in cinnamon. Serve warm or cold. Topped with cinnamon or a drizzle of maple syrup.

  1. Hi, Katie! Cherry pudding makes me think of my mother. She made it from scratch all summer long. Hers were the only cherry puddings that I ever ate. Another food that reminds me of mom would be potato salad because she made the best. Have an excellent week, Katie!

  2. Yum…..I’ve always wanted to try this. Thanks for the recipe katie:)

  3. I don’t believe I have ever had rice pudding. This sounds so good, I might have to give it a try sometime. Thank you for sharing! Happy Monday sweetie.

  4. Thanks for adding this recipe to Creative Monday Katherine. I have never had rice pudding. I need to give it a try. I like rice and it sounds delicious. My mother is alive but she just loves ripe plantains fried or baked!:) Take care and have a good week!

  5. Oh that sounds so delicious. It is very similar to my moms recipe but she used coconut milk. Loved her rice pudding! Think I might make some.

  6. Oh Katherine, that brings back memories from childhood. My mum always used to make rice pudding too, and I loved it, especially the skin on the top , which came from the nutmeg that she used. Thanks for the memories!

  7. I’m trying to remember the last time I’ve had rice pudding? Must have been at least a couple of decades.

  8. This looks amazing! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. I love finding new blogs to visit/follow. Following yours now. :)

    This brings back good memories. My Mom’s rice pudding was made in the oven, and I used to pick the raisins out (still don’t like raisins.) TFS!

  10. ♥♥♥ rice pudding. My mother used to make it, too.♥

  11. This is a family favorite! Your version is about the same as mine. Looks very yummy!

    It sounds delicious. I haven’t had any in a long time. It’s one of my son-in-laws favorites. I may just have to whip some up for him!

  13. I havent had Rice Pudding in a long time, it looks sooo..good! =)

  14. I’ve been looking for a good rice pudding recipe – it reminds me of my mother-in-law! Every holiday came this wonderful pudding with a side of raspberry glace. Except that someone had handwritten the recipe and it looked like “RUE pudding”, so they called it that everafter! :)
