Creamy Stovetop Rice Pudding

Connie Kiers


This is a lovely creamy rice pudding that is very simple to make.

I got this recipe many, many years ago from a local farm paper. It is the best rice pudding I've ever tasted.

How to Make Creamy Stovetop Rice Pudding


  1. Combine milk, rice, sugar, butter and salt in a 3 quart heavy saucepan.
  2. Over MEDIUM heat, heat above mixture until tiny bubbles form around the edge, stirring frequently. This can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 1/2 hour, depending on your stove.
  3. Reduce heat to LOW. Cover and simmer for about 1 hour or till rice is very tender, stirring occasionally.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract.
    If desired, sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg before serving.
  5. We like to eat it hot, but you can also serve it cold.
