Desserts can be hard when food, in general, seems pricey. Thats why it is so incredibly important to keep staples like sugar, rice, oats and spices on hand. This is why rice pudding is the perfect way to not only make a delicious dessert but also be able to make something super filling (rice and oat milk) and works GREAT for those who have a sweet tooth.
The best part about this quick and easy Rice Cooker Rice Pudding recipe is that you don’t have to do a darn thing hardly. Cleaning the rice is literally the hardest part you have to do. The rice cooker does the rest. It’s so super simple!
Dessert is always such a delicious treat! I remember going to this one restaurant in my little home town with my family. They had a salad style buffet table you could go to, and I just loved it (what can I say. I love variety), but you always got an option of jello or rice pudding at the end. I have never really ever been a fan of jello. So I always got rice pudding. It was thick and creamy and dotted with little raisins for a delicious contrast in texture.
It has never ONCE popped into my head over the years to try and make this. One, because it is so much easier to buy things premade (right?!) and two, I was usually the only one eating it! So why bother right!? Well, that was till this past December when I started craving it again. But, my only grocery store doesn’t sell any that are vegan (I don’t even know if that exists yet!). So that’s how MY take on rice pudding was born!
I want this rice pudding to be easy for absolutely anyone to eat. It is delicious and not even remotely nutritious. But what dessert is?! …Don’t answer that! Dessert isn’t supposed to be nutritious. Cake isn’t nutritious. Rice pudding is just cake soup. Is that too much? Did I go too far? I don’t care. That’s how yummy this rice pudding is!
This is a great dish if you have impromptu guests stop by. It’s quick to whip up, and you don’t have to be in the kitchen too long making it. While your guests are in another room waiting for you.
A few notes on this recipe:
- You can omit the salt and vanilla, however, it does then make the dish quite sweet without something to balance all the sweet out.
- Feel free to make this ahead of time. But, when you store in the fridge, note that you will need to add some more oat milk after heating to give it’s moisture back.
- Feel free to add chopped nuts or omit the raisins. It’s all up to your preference.
