Well, darn I always have a picture of my recipes but we were so fast to getting into the warm and tasty rice pudding I forgot to take a picture. A friend of ours Wendy (author of Henri & Friends) ask me to make her rice pudding for her birthday dessert. I have not thought about rice pudding in years it was something my Mother made that I just loved. I have learned over the years that I can not reproduce my Mom’s recipes. I don’t think it’s the recipe that I can’t reproduce it’s the feeling of coming to Mom’s kitchen with all the smells and watching what she love most ….cooking for friends and family.
Since Mom never used recipes I got online and found this simple stove top rice pudding….not bad but not Mom’s.
1 – 1/2 cups of uncooked white rice
4 cups of milk
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 beaten eggs
1-1/3 cup of golden raisins (I only used about a cup)
2 Tablespoons of butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Bring 3 cups of water to a boil, add rice and stir. Reduce heat cover and simmer 20 minutes.
In a saucepan, combine 3 cups of cooked rice, 3 cups milk, sugar and salt. Cook over medium heat until thick and creamy, about 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in remaining 1 cup of milk with 2 beaten eggs and raisins. Cook 2 minutes more, constantly stirring. Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla. Wonderful served warm with a dollop of whipped cream.
