Easy, Thick Rice Pudding

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by hannahactually

This is a stovetop rice pudding recipe that I have concocted after two years of trying different recipes and playing with ratios. It is my personal favorite rice pudding--thick, creamy, and simple to make. This makes a lot of pudding, but is perfect for using leftover rice!
