- 1 c. white rice
- 2 c. water
- 3 T. butter
- 1/2 c. sugar (more or less, to taste)
- 1 c. milk
- 1 t. vanilla
- cinnamon, to taste
1. Cook rice according to package directions. Bring rice and water to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 15 minutes until liquid is absorbed.
2. Add butter, sugar, milk, and vanilla. Increase heat to medium and stir until butter is melted. Bring to boil, then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, stirring often to prevent sugar from burning. Cook until mixture thickens, about 5-7 minutes (may take a little longer for a double batch).
3. Serve warm, sprinkle with cinnamon. (Michael likes his with brown sugar and raisins - his family actually makes a baked version that way)
Peanut got to try it for the first time and she is totally sold!
But here's what happens when you give babies rice pudding... you've been warned!
