Crock-Pot Rice Pudding



4 servings

If there's an easier way to make creamy rice pudding, I don't know what it is.


  • 1/2 cup Arborio (short grain) rice
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup raisins , (optional, but classic)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ground cinnamon , for topping


  • In the crock pot, combine the rice, milk, sugar and butter. Cook on low setting for 5 to 6 hours, or on high setting for 2-½ to 3 hours. Stir in the raisins and vanilla after you turn off the heat. Transfer to a bowl (or bowls) and sprinkle lightly with cinnamon. Don’t worry if it seems a bit runny, it will thicken up nicely as it chills.
