This rice pudding recipe is one that I learned from my dad. We would have rice pudding regularly as a dessert during the cold winter months, and I would always look forward to it immensely. I took this recipe to university with me, and since then, this recipe has been described as "like having a hug on the inside."

It can be served as-is, hot out of the oven, or it can be cooled and served with fruit. This guide has many serving suggestions to suit any mood that you could be in.

Serving Suggestions

  • Stirring Nutella or melted chocolate into the rice pudding when it comes out of the oven will give you a decedent chocolate rice pudding.
  • If you omit some of the sugar in the recipe you can then sweeten it with honey when you are serving it.
  • You can put this rice pudding in the fridge to cool it, and then can be served with berries or apple as a refreshing treat.
