Rice Pudding in a Slow Cooker

Rice Pudding in a Slow Cooker


"This pudding is done in a slow cooker, and tastes wonderful after a cold day in the snow, or a long walk on a cold night. Excellent for Christmas Eve. It is very inexpensive to make, and it freezes well if you want to make a double batch. It is best served warm with a pinch of nutmeg or ground cloves. Add baked apples for an extra special treat."

You have to use short grain rice Arborio the kind used in risotto. Long grain is not meant for pudding. Only short grain will make a creamy pudding.


I just finished making this pudding. I was sceptical at first after reading the other reviews, but I must say I disagree with most of them. I like this a lot. It is creamy, the rice is tender. It took 2.5 hrs. just like the recipe said on high. I added more cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg because I like more flavor than usual. I definately will do this again. Thanks.

This recipe tasted fine, but the recipe is wrong when it instructs you to cook the pudding on "low;" I cooked the mixture on low for four hours and the rice was still crunchy. I finally just had to add some water and cook it on high for another hour and a half to get it to cook through. I don't like crunchy rice! Otherwise, this pudding was very tasty. I substituted Splenda for half the sugar and coconut milk (not cream) for half the evaporated milk. It tastes lovely!
