Marie's Rice Pudding

marie rice pudding3

Finally, an easy, delicious recipe for rice pudding that I don't have to bake for 2 hours.

You can do this on the stove in 30 minutes.
Golden raisins are a must!

I received a nice jar of Red Ape Cinnamon to try out.
This had a beautiful cinnamon flavor, much better than the supermarket stuff you get.
Much more aromatic and pure tasting.

This is pure ground Cassia organic cinnamon from Sumatra, and worth seeking out.
It was perfect sprinkled on top of Marie's rice pudding.

Proud Italian Cook's Rice Pudding:

3 cups of water
pinch of salt
1/2 cup of Arborio rice
4 cups milk (I used whole milk)
1/3 cup of sugar
2 t. real vanilla
golden raisins and cinnamon (I didn't measure)

Precook your rice in water for 10 minutes, drain.

In a pan combine cooked rice, milk and sugar, and cook on a medium heat stirring often for about 35 minutes. When finished, stir in your raisins, cinnamon and vanilla. If you're going to refrigerate your pudding at this point, place your plastic wrap right on top of the pudding so no skin forms on top.

My husband is a big rice pudding lover so this is a keeper for him. Have you ever eaten the rice pudding at "Rice to Riches"? Simply decadent.

I'm so glad you don't have to bake your rice pudding for 2 hours anymore, and that you liked it. Love your photo on top, it looks nice and creamy! Now I have to check out that cinnamon, that's something I definitely need to upgrade on!

I have to keep an eye out for that cinnamon.

Never heard of that brand of cinnamon... even if it wasn't delicious, it'd be fun to use :)
