Creamy Brown Rice Pudding

Creamy Brown Rice Pudding

Diana Hagewood Smith 0

"This version of rice pudding uses brown rice, cinnamon, and almond extract to make a slightly nutty comfort dessert. My mother adds raisins during the last 15 minutes; she calls this 'Speckled Pup,' but I prefer my rice pudding without raisins."

I didn't expect such a wonderful final product. It's rice pudding, after all. I wasn't trying to re-invent the wheel. The only change I made was using half as much sugar and adding 3/4 t grou...

I cut down the cooking time by boiling the rice covered on medium heat for 30 minutes. I kept all the ingredients the same, except used 3/4 c sugar. It was fantastic! Just like Grandma's!

This turned out great! Though, I cut the sugar in half and still found it plenty sweet.
