Creamy Stovetop Rice Pudding

Homemade rice pudding is such a delight. From the luxurious texture to the wonderful taste, it is so worth the time to make. When I find myself with leftover plain rice, this is my go to recipe to use it up. It is just so delicious and I can’t rave about it enough.

Making it on the stove top does require you to stay close by with frequent stirring, so pop on a podcast or audiobook and stir, stir, stir. It is worth it! 

Creamy Stovetop Rice Pudding

This recipe utilizes already cooked rice, so this is the perfect way to use up leftovers in the fridge. The raisins are optional so feel free to omit them if you aren’t a fan, or consider swapping them for the chopped, dried fruit of your choosing.
Tempering the egg mixture is important as it ensures you won’t have any egg bits in your pudding, so be sure not to skip that step. 
Rice pudding served warm off of the stove is a special thing, but chilled from the fridge is also delicious. Super simple to make, all it requires is a bit of patience. Enjoy!
