Old Fashioned Stovetop Rice Pudding

This old fashioned stovetop rice pudding is a hand-me-down recipe. The rich and creamy pudding with homemade whipped cream will be a favorite.

It's my childhood favorite.  My Mom would make a super creamy pudding with a touch of cinnamon, a couple handful raisins and a sprinkle of nutmeg on top.

- whole milk - grain rice - granulated sugar - salted butter


Place a 2 quart pot over medium high heat. To the pot add the milk, rice, sugar, butter, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and kosher salt. Stir to combine.

Step 1

Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer the rice mixture. Stir occasionally. The milk should reduce and the rice tender.

Step 2

In a small bowl add the beaten eggs. Stir to combine and warm the eggs. Add another 1/4 cup of the rice mixture to the eggs and stir to combine.

Step 3

Add the egg mixture to the pot and stir to combine. Cook over low heat for 1 minute or so to thicken the mixture.

Step 4

Stir in the dried cranberries.
