Delicious, creamy and simple. You can add rum-soaked raisins when you add the milk if you wish. I serve it with crushed-berry syrup or applesauce. This is the way all of my husband's family (in Germany) makes it. They generally serve it as a main dish rather than a desert, but cut down the sugar a bit.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups short or medium grained white rice (uncooked)
  • 4 cups water
  • 12 tablespoon salt
  • 4 cups milk (divided - 3 cups/1cup)
  • 12-1 12 cup sugar (to taste)
  • 1 12 tablespoons vanilla
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons butter

Directions

  1. Bring rice, water and salt to boil. Cover and reduce heat to low.
  2. Cook 20 minutes, until all water is absorbed.
  3. Add 3 cups milk, sugar and vanilla to rice.
  4. Simmer on low, stirring often, about 20 minutes, until most of milk is absorbed.
  5. Beat eggs until smooth, add 1 cup milk and beat until thoroughly combined.
  6. Slowly pour egg mixture into rice and continue cooking until desired consistency (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat.
  7. Add butter and stir until butter is thoroughly melted and incorporated.
  8. Enjoy.
