I know “Love Puddin'” sounds like something you’d affectionately call your extra stomach fat, but bear with me. The following is the best recipe for rice pudding or love puddin’, as I like to call it. It’s so good, you’ll be calling it love puddin’ in no time.
2 cups of cooked rice
2 cups of milk (I use almond milk, but soy or dairy milk will work.)
1/2 cup of sugar
2 tablespoons of butter
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
a dash of cinnamon
strawberries, raisins or whatever fruit you prefer to sprinkle on top
Step 1: Stir the cooked rice, 1 & 1/2 cups of milk and the 1/2 cup of sugar together in a sauce pan on the stove over low heat.
Step 2: Leave on low heat for 15 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes.
Step 3: After 15 minutes the rice, milk and sugar will come together. Then, add the last 1/2 cup of milk and a beaten egg to the mixture. Stir the milk and eggs into the rice quickly or you will have bits of scrambled egg in the rice!
Step 4: Add the butter and vanilla extract.
Step 5: Sprinkle with cinnamon and garnish with strawberries, raisins or your fruit of choice.
Step 6: Enjoy your love puddin’ with the one you love! Or eat it all by yourself, I don’t judge. It’s good warm or cold!
