Rice Pudding from Leftover Rice

Total Time

good way to use up leftover rice! shorter grains give creamier results but basmati and jasmine can work too. you can leave out the eggs for a less rich version.


  1. bring rice, milk, cream and sugar to a boil.
  2. simmer 15 minutes stirring occasionally.
  3. stir in vanilla, cinnamon and raisins.
  4. cook until thick and creamy.
  5. tip: if you stir a lot at the end it will be creamier!
  6. turn off heat and stir in egg yolks.
  7. serve warm or chilled, i prefer chilled with this recipe.

I had never done stove-top rice pudding before, and it turned out tasty, but a bit thicker than I get doing the custard-oven method. I will stick to the oven method but this is a good recipe for those times you don't have an hour or more to bake the pudding. I might add some nutmeg next time. Sweetness was just right. Don't care for raisins, so left them out. Made for My 3 Chefs game.
