  • 3 1/2 cups milk (2% or whole)
  • 1/2 cup uncooked medium-grain or long-grain white rice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon (you can use less or more) ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup craisins, (you can also use raisins)


  • Combine milk, rice, and salt in a large saucepan or a soup pot.
  • Bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat to LOW and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the rice is cooked and tender. Make sure to stir it every once in a while so to prevent the rice from sticking to the pan.
  • In a separate mixing bowl whisk together brown sugar and egg.
  • Scoop out 1/3 cup of the cooked rice pudding and whisk into the egg mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time. DO NOT stop whisking or you’ll end up with scrambled eggs.
  • Whisk the entire brown sugar mixture back into the pot; whisk in cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla, and continue to cook over low heat for 5 to 7 more minutes, or until thickened.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the craisins.
  • Let stand a few minutes before serving.
  • Serve warm or cold with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top.
