"This version of rice pudding uses brown rice, cinnamon, and almond extract to make a slightly nutty comfort dessert. My mother adds raisins during the last 15 minutes; she calls this 'Speckled Pup,' but I prefer my rice pudding without raisins." — Diana Smith

uncooked brown rice
1 (12 fluid ounce) can
1 (3 inch) piece
I didn't expect such a wonderful final product. It's rice pudding, after all. I wasn't trying to re-invent the wheel. The only change I made was using half as much sugar and adding 3/4 t ground cinnamon instead of a cinnamon stick. It was "to live for". I've made it a couple of times now for a friend who is recovering in his home after major surgery. He says it has the same comfort factor as custard. Eats a bowl for breakfast some mornings.
This turned out pretty tasty! I substituted some ingredients. Instead of 2 cups of milk, I used one 15 oz can of GOYA coconut milk. I didn't have any almond extract so I used pure vanilla extract. Next time I make this I will divide recipe in half because 2 cups of uncooked rice yields a lot of rice.
I cut down the cooking time by boiling the rice covered on medium heat for 30 minutes. I kept all the ingredients the same, except used 3/4 c sugar. It was fantastic! Just like Grandma's!
This is delish! For anyone following a diebetic diet, the brown rice is always a better choice. I used 1/2 cup of honey. Honey takes longer to digest, again, better for your diet. I also added raisins, also used fat free evaporated milk and skim milk. You won't notice the lack of fat. I also took a readers idea for ground cinnamon. This really is one of those I will use forever...thank you for your recipe Diana.
DELISH! I started with leftover brown rice (already cooked) and added 1pt. whipping cream and 3/4 c. water. This rice pudding turned out amazing. Love, love, love the almond extract addition.
I used ground cinnamon instead of a cinnamon stick, vanilla instead of almond extract, and instead of the evaporated milk I increased the regular milk and added some heavy cream. This takes a long time but it is worth it. I'm not a big fan of brown rice but this is a way I will gladly eat it again.
This turned out great! Though, I cut the sugar in half and still found it plenty sweet.
For me this is five stars with half the sugar. Very creamy!
