It’s full of milk and eggs and, a little sweetness…what more could you ask for from a holiday breakfast? Plus it’s easy to make.

The Ultimate Traditional Gluten-Free Rice Pudding Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 7 cups homogenized milk (separate 1 cup as it is added towards the end)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup long grain converted rice
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 1 cup golden raisins

Directions:

  • In a large shallow pot combine 6 cups of milk, 1 cup of sugar, and 1 cup of rice.
  • Bring that mixture to a boil, stirring frequently.
Tip: Much like risotto do not leave this alone.
Tip: Use a silicone spatula to stir so that you mix right from the bottom, so nothing sticks.
  • Once the mixture boils, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer covered for a half an hour. Stirring occasionally.
  • While the rice cooks place your cup of raisins in a small microwaveable bowl or a 2 cup glass measuring cup with enough water to cover them.
  • Microwave for 30 seconds, to allow them to bloom.
  • Drain water from raisins and lay them on a paper towel to dry, for a new minutes.
  • After 30 minutes remove cover from the rice and then let simmer 30 minutes longer or until rice is tender not mushy (the milk will not be totally absorbed).
  • Add in the raisins, stirring thoroughly.
  • In a medium bowl, beat together the remaining 1 cup of milk, 2 eggs, and the vanilla bean paste, until blended together.
  • Add the egg, vanilla and milk mixture to the rice mixture- stirring well.
  • Transfer mixture to a large bowl coved with plastic wrap or place in a large Tupperware and refrigerate until chilled.
  • The rice pudding can last in the fridge for up to a week, but trust me, it won’t!

Topping Suggestions (optional as it’s just fine on it’s own):

  • Sprinkling of cinnamon
  • Chocolate shavings/grated chocolate
  • A dollop of gluten-free whipped cream or vanilla flavoured whipped cream.
