Another recipe I received over 20 years ago. Its called impossible because with this amount of rice to liquid ratio it shouldn't work, but it has worked like a charm for me. Very creamy indeed. with an old fashioned taste.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat milk and water together on stove top to barely boiling.
  2. Add rest of ingredients, except for spices and stir.
  3. Cover and reduce heat to very low and cook for 45-50 minutes.
  4. Check rice to make sure it is tender and liquid is creamy and thickened, if not, cover again and cook another 5-10 minutes.
  5. Will thicken even more upon standing.
  6. Sprinkle with Nutmeg or Cinnamon.

Lovely recipe that was enjoyed by the whole family. Instead of raisins I used dried blueberries and instead of the vanilla pudding mix I used custard powder. This makes quite a lot so I now have some for the freezer.

This is a good, basic rice pudding recipe and was easy to make. We liked it, but to our taste, it wasn't as creamy as we would like. I might make it again, with some adjustments.
