This easy rice pudding recipe makes the perfect comfort food.

Everyone in my family likes rice pudding; my husband, my two sometimes fussy little girls, and me. Problem is…I didn’t know how to make it. I tried to make it once for my husband years and years ago when we were first married. It was an absolute failure. The rice never fully cooked, it was crunchy rather than creamy.

When I found this recipe I decided to give it another try and it was a great success! Really, really good, and easy too -creamy, not too sweet, and with plump juicy raisins. This time I used instant rice, and it worked great.

My husband happened to be working from home, and it was ready just as my girls got home from school. We had it warm from the oven with cinnamon sprinkled on top -dessert before dinner, but don’t tell anyone. 😉
