This is a lovely creamy rice pudding that is very simple to make. It is the best rice pudding I've ever tasted.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This warm and creamy rice pudding is thick and has just the right touch of sweetness. Like most old-fashioned recipes, this has very few ingredients and takes just a little time to prepare. It's cooked with love just like Grandma used to make. It sounds like a lot of milk but trust the process. Let the milk simmer and stir every so often until thick. Sprinkle with cinnamon for a comforting dessert.

How To Make creamy stovetop rice pudding

Test Kitchen Tips
This recipe calls for converted rice which is also known as par boiled rice. Make sure to read the rice's packaging.
  • Milk, rice, sugar, butter, and salt in a saucepan.
    Combine milk, rice, sugar, butter, and salt in a 3-quart heavy saucepan.
  • Heating until mixture starts to simmer.
    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.
  • Cooking the rice on low in a covered saucepan.
    Reduce heat to LOW. Cover and simmer for about 1 hour or till rice is very tender, stirring occasionally.
  • Stirring in vanilla extract.
    Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract.
  • Cinnamon sprinkled over the Creamy Stovetop Rice Pudding.
    If desired, sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg before serving. We like to eat it hot, but you can also serve it cold.
