Old Fashioned Rice Pudding

Ironically, my mom has not one rice pudding dish in her expansive archives.  However, I do have so many fond memories of eating rice pudding as a child.  And, it wasn’t from anything homemade.  We didn’t go out to eat much as a family but when we did we’d often go to Maria’s, a local Italian restaurant in Baltimore.  Aside from featuring amazing Italian dishes, I was always ordered their homemade rice pudding for dessert.  It was the best treat, boasting a perfect creamy rice blend, served warm with a generous sprinkling of cinnamon on top.  I loved it.

I was ready create my own homemade rice pudding memories for my kids, in my own kitchen with Mom’s Old-Fashioned Rice Pudding.

For something that tastes so decadent and creamy, it’s hard to believe how easy Rice Pudding is to make.  Using staple ingredients that can be found in any stocked pantry and refrigerator, you don’t need any culinary skills to whip up the best batch of pudding.  Honestly, this recipe only requires stirring the rice on the stove top with boiled milk and eggs and sugar!

In just 45 minutes you can create the best, most deliciously creamy rice pudding.  Served warm or cold, either way, you’ll have a winner.
