Good, easy rice pudding, just like the title says. My four star rating (rather than five) is due to two things. First, I found that "stir often" was a good way to nearly scorch my pudding; "stir constantly" was required when I prepared this, and I backed down to a bare simmer rather than boil. Second, the taste at the end, though creamy and sweet, was flat. A pinch of salt (maybe up to 1/4-1/2 tsp, depending on the saltiness of your butter?) gave the flavor a fuller, deeper quality that (I thought) it needed. Nonetheless, this recipe is totally worth a try if you have leftover rice and I'll be making it again I'm sure.
Made too much rice the other night. DH suggested rice pudding. He said that in 17 years of marriage I had never made it(didn't know he liked it!)All of the recipes I found called for uncooked rice. So, I decided to give up and look at the reviews from the day before. Wouldn't you know that I came upon this recipe!!!! I immediately doubled it and started cooking. DH said that this was THE BEST rice pudding he had ever eaten!!! I also loved it. I really liked how simple it was to make and the vanilla did something wonderful to it. I had never really cared for rice pudding because of the nutmeg. Thanks for a really great recipe!!
I use this recipe every time I make rice pudding because I always have the right ingredients on hand. It's super-easy and oh-so-tasty.
