While at my brother's house, we were trying to come up with a last-minute dessert that we could make with items we had on hand. I had a recipe for rice pudding that looked very easy and sounded pretty good. As we started putting it together, we found that we had to substitute a couple of items but it really turned out very good. This is what we came up with.
(4 oz serving size) vanilla flavored instant pudding
walnuts or pecans, chopped (optional)
How To Make easy rice pudding
In a medium saucepan, on medium-low heat, bring 1 cup of the milk to boil.
Stir in rice, apple, raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg, butter, sugar, salt and extract (if using). Cover and reduce heat to low; simmer for 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine remaining 2 cups milk with the instant pudding mix; whisk until smooth.
Add rice mixture to prepared pudding; mix well. Stir in nuts.
Cover surface of pudding with plastic wrap or airtight lid; cool 5 minutes.
Serve warm or chilled, sprinkled with cinnamon (optional).
