Nothing feels more like home to me than a bowl of this delectable pastry. I experienced childhood with it!

Rich, velvety Rice Pudding is scrumptious warm or cold, and delicately spiced with simply a trace of cinnamon. It’s the coziest, most ameliorating sweet of all! We love it with stout brilliant raisins!

It’s so natural to make hand crafted rice pudding and it’s an extraordinary method of spending extra rice!

This antiquated treat is an example that is definitive in smooth solace in a bowl. Serve it warm and it’s ideal for cold winter evenings. Or then again chill it in the refrigerator for an awesome warm climate treat!

Cooked medium-grain rice is stewed with milk, sugar, and heavy cream, added in to thicken things up and make things extra velvety and rich.

I like to add only a tad of cinnamon to enhance the rice pudding, yet I’m not cumbersome with the flavors since it could without much of a stretch overwhelm the exemplary kinds of this pastry. More cinnamon can be sprinkled over the highest point of each filling in as a topping, whenever wanted.

You can forget about the raisins, on the off chance that you’re not into them. However, there is a brilliant thing about the explosions of sweet full brilliant raisins in the smooth rice pudding that I love, in spite of not being a tremendous raisin fan in any case.
