  • 1 cup long grain rice uncooked
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk I use 2%
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Nutmeg or cinnamon
  • 1 cup raisins (optional)


  • Add rice, sugar, salt, 2 cups regular milk and the 1 cup whipping cream to a medium saucepan on top of the stove.  Cook on medium or high just until you see bubbles start to form in the mixture.
  • Turn burner to low, cover and let cook for 20 minutes stirring two to three times.  Remove from heat, add vanilla extract and raisins.  Sprinkle on nutmeg or cinnamon to taste.  Rice will become thicker as it cools.
