Rice Pudding

For an old-fashioned sweet treat just like Grandma used to make, try this slow-cooker rice pudding. It has a rich cinnamon flavor and is made wonderfully light after whipped cream is stirred in at the end. —Jennifer Bennett, Salem, Indiana

Slow-Cooker Rice Pudding Tips

What is converted rice? Do I have to use it for the recipe?

Converted rice is partially boiled rice. You can use it for this slow-cooker rice pudding recipe, or you can use a long grain rice of your choice like jasmine or basmati.

How do you thicken rice pudding?

Both the eggs and whipping cream thicken this recipe—but you can add a little more of either if you'd like a thicker result.

How long does homemade rice pudding last? Can you freeze it?

Rice pudding recipes last in the fridge for about four days. For best results, chill or freeze it without the whipped cream added. To use, thaw in the refrigerator overnight and fold in the whipped cream.

    To ienon - if you are as nutrition conscious as you portray then you should be able to figure out for yourself if it is too fat laden, carb laden, sugar or salt laden to suit your tastes or dietary requirements. Suck it up and scroll on if it doesn't suit your needs.

    The recipe is good and it takes me back to my childhood!!!!! I tried it and it was a big hit with the family. This one is a keeper for sure, thanks for sharing. I agree that reviews must be about recipes tried and nothing else.

    I want to try this, but who has a 1 1/2 quarter slow cooker? Can it be made in a larger one or in the oven?

    Where is the nutritional information?

    The purpose behind reviewing a recipe should be based on taste and the level of ease or difficulty in preparation. It is disturbing when ratings are based on unrelated preferences. Most people will adjust a recipe according to their personal needs. If you don't actually try it, you shouldn't rate it.

    I will not try a new recipe unless I have the facts about it. If it is loaded with fats and carbs-forget it. Why do you not do this for all recipes?
