Enjoy the comfort of rice pudding in a fraction of the time.  Start with raw rice, milk, cinnamon and sweetened condensed milk and have sweet creamy rice pudding with almost no effort.

This rice pudding is thick, rich and creamy, just the way you would want it to be. Add raisins, dried cranberries or whatever you would like and take it to the next level.

Then enjoy you pudding warm or cold. I find it interesting the way people enjoy rice pudding.

I love to eat it warm. There is something extra comforting about the cinnamon, nutmeg and warm creaminess.

But I know a lot of folks like to chill it before they eat it too. Maybe you should have one bowl fresh and warm and another cold and creamy.

Making rice pudding is easy

Sometimes rive pudding is made because you have leftover rice that needs used up. But it is so good, sometimes you just want to make it for the sake of it, so you don’t have cooked rice on hand.

That is where your pressure cooker comes in. Start with raw long grain rice and be ready to dig in in no time.

The rice cooks in water and milk, so it is already creamy. The stir in sweetened condensed milk to instantly make it rich, sweet and creamy.

I used a recipe of my homemade sweetened condensed milk, but a can is perfect too. That’s really all it takes!

If your rice pudding is thicker than you would like it, stir in an extra splash of milk. If it is too thin, just cook it a little bit longer.
