Rice Pudding

Wholesome, comforting, filling, and just all around delicious. If you have fond memories of rice pudding from your childhood, this might be what you're looking for. If you don't have fond memories, this might be what makes you love rice pudding.

My parents were not what one might call spectacular in the cooking department, but I did come away from my childhood with a love of my dad’s spaghetti sauce, and his rice pudding. Rice pudding is a delicious way to use leftover rice, but it’s so warm, comforting, and filling, that it’s not unreasonable to make rice in the evening just for this recipe (or make extra!) the next morning.

If you’re curious where I did learn to cook since it wasn’t through growing up, I learned thanks to Alton Brown’s Good Eats show. The science of cooking really appealed to me and it changed everything I thought I knew about food. I would burn water. I could barely manage frozen chicken strips and lasagna. I pat my past self on the head in pity. It’s a bit embarrassing to know I managed to fail on freezer food 20 years ago.

Anyway, back to rice pudding. Some people do not like raisins in their rice pudding, and it should be fine to just leave them out. But they really do complete the whole flavour and texture profile of a good rice pudding! My opinion and all that. I originally posted this on December 17, 2008 as my 3rd ever recipe to share. It is one of very few that I haven’t gone back to and modified as my cooking knowledge increased. This one is just perfect as is.
