10 Recipes for Rice Pudding That Will Make Your Mouth Water


If you looked up comfort food dessert in the dictionary, rice pudding would surely be pictured. Thiss collection of rice pudding recipes includes rice pudding that is baked, made on the stovetop, made in the slow cooker and flavored with everything from chocolate to raspberry sauce. You can serve rice pudding either warm or cold. I prefer to eat it warm, right out of the pot, but that's just me.

The latest trend is to add toppings to rice pudding. You can try anything from raisins to toasted coconut to crushed graham crackers.

This rice pudding recipe is simplicity defined. Just the basic ingredients - rice, milk, sugar and butter, plus a few flavorings. Feel free to add raisins or sweetened dried cranberries to this rice pudding if you like. They can cook right along with the rice pudding (they'll soften and plump a little). I like to serve this creamy rice pudding warm.

2. Raspberry Rice Pudding Recipe

A super simple homemade raspberry sauce gives this rice pudding recipe a standout flavor your family won't soon forget. The raspberries add bright flavor and color to the rice pudding, especially when you serve this dessert parfait style, layered in glasses. Want an even more decadent treat? Add a drizzle of chocolate sauce to the top.

3. Stovetop Rice Pudding Recipe

Could there be a better way to use leftover cooked rice than in this easy rice pudding recipe? I think not. It's quick, comforting and oh so tasty. For a change of pace, try using sweetened dried cranberries or cherries instead of raisins in this recipe.

4. Baked Rice Pudding Recipe

The secret that makes this baked rice pudding so silky smooth is using the right kind of rice - arborio rice, the same type of rice used in risotto - and stirring frequently. Otherwise, the pudding might develop a skin. I like to top this rice pudding with Demerara sugar, a larger crystal sugar that is less refined and gives a real punch of sweet flavor to every bite.

5. Old-Fashioned Rice Pudding with Oatmeal Topping

This rice pudding cooks low and slow on the stovetop, just like Grandma's. And it's every bit as creamy and satisfying as the rice pudding you may remember from your childhood. Whether you had a Grandma who make rice pudding or not, you owe it to yourself to give this recipe a try, it is a touch of creamy heaven in every bite. The oatmeal crumble topping lends a sweet crunch to this recipe that contrasts beautifully with the creamy texture of the rice pudding.

6. Brown Rice Pudding Recipe for the Crockpot

Long-grain jasmine or basmati brown rice cooks in a bath of sweetened condensed milk and coconut milk in this easy, wholesome rice pudding recipe. Just dump the ingredients in, cover, and come back hours later to a creamy dessert the whole family will enjoy.

Important: Do not use sweetened coconut milk for this recipe unless you like your rice pudding very sweet. Look for unsweetened coconut milk in the refrigerated section of your supermarket, near the soy milk and rice milk. Feel free to use regular milk if you can't find it. The recipe will still turn out fine.

7. Chocolate Rice Pudding Recipe

IF regular rice pudding isn't rich enough for you, try this chocolate rice pudding. It has all the warmth and creaminess of regular rice pudding with a rich chocolate flavor. Vary it by using milk or dark chocolate chips instead of semisweet. And this rice pudding tastes great topped with fresh sliced strawberries.

8. Slow Cooker Rice Pudding Recipe
