About This Recipe

"This Company's Coming recipe for rice pudding is by far the easiest one I have ever made. I might add an extra tablespoon or so of sugar next time, and maybe top the vanilla up to a full 2 teaspoons. However, it did taste just fine as is. The cinnamon taste is VERY mild, so you may want to sprinkle more cinnamon on top of individual servings."

Ingredients

    • 3/4 cup short-grain rice
    • 1 (13 1/2 ounce) cans evaporated milk ( skim is fine, 385ml)
    • 2 cups water
    • 1/3 cup white sugar
    • 1/2 cup raisins
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
    • 3/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1 (3 inch) cinnamon sticks

Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients in slow cooker; stir well.
  2. Cover and cook on Low for 4 to 5 hours or on High for 2 to 2-1/2 hours.
  3. Stir twice during cooking period.
