I'm the baker in the house, but my hubby is rice pudding master. He has a recipe from his grama that takes 1/2day to make in the oven and includes a yummy custard topping- the hrs of prep and wait are TOTALLY worth it. But 10pm last night we were craving rice pudding so i jumped over here and found this. I'm not so crazy to think the results of 15min pudding can come NEAR grama M's recipe, BUT, this wasn't bad for what it is.
I didn't read reviews before making but already knew 1TBS of cinn WAY too much. cut that in half to begin with. cinn on it's own is 1-dimentional for me, i think nutmeg would have helped expand the flavor, will try 1/4 t next time. I also knew it needed vanilla by tasting as i mixed, I used about 1TBS. I did end up using the full 1/2c sugar with the 1 can cond. milk, but added the sugar gradually and figured since we were missing custard i'd make it a lil sweeter than it need be, but could have stopped at 1/4 or 1/3c. the rice i used wasnt leftover, i microwaved 2c instant and let it stand for 10mins before adding it hot to saucepan of roomtemp milk on med-high heat and continuosly stirred. By the time it was oatmeal consistency i took it off the burner, maybe 10-12 mins on elec stovetop? i think it does need egg which would need to go in 1st before rice, will try next time. Texture of this was a bit chewy/grainy (prob my instant rice method didnt help) but for about 20 mins of work this satisfied a craving. Thanks for sharing, its a good start point!
