Cinnamon Rice Pudding Recipe
Rice is an ingredient that we use very often in our savoury main meals. But we sometimes forget that it can be made into a super sweet dessert.
This post will show you how to make a delicious cinnamon rice pudding dessert from some very simple ingredients.
Rice Pudding with Condensed Milk
Many rice pudding recipes use milk and sugar to sweeten the recipe. But my rice pudding recipe comes from Brazil.
This recipe has been borrowed from my Brazilian mother-in-law who is a fantastic cook, having fed a large family for many years.
The important ingredient is condensed milk, which provides sweetness to the dish.
But there is also a secret ingredient addition of coconut, which is a gamechanger and if you did not like rice pudding before, you will now!
If you wish to experiment you can also add raisins, which provide a bit of fruit and variety to the recipe as an option, a bit like in my scones and cream recipe.
I think rice pudding with raisins is great, but not everyone likes raisins in our house.
This creamed rice recipe is really very easy to make and can be made upfront and refrigerated until you want to eat it.
Rice Pudding at School
When I was a kid we often used to get served up old fashioned rice pudding at school. I am assuming now that it used to come out of a can in those days (although I may be wrong).
It must be said I was not a really big fan back then, but perhaps this was down to the quality of the product. I am not sure.
However, times have definitely changed as I think this recipe is a great one for making a sweet and creamy rice pudding.
It is good as a dessert or even as a snack, and is quite filling so it can stretch a long way. Also, I think the kids will love it.
