Cooked on top of the stove, this traditional pudding is delicious and very creamy. The blend of milk, raisins, vanilla and cinnamon make this recipe one of our best "comfort foods."


  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup white rice, medium or short grain
  • 1 cinnamon stick, broken into pieces
  • 1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
  • 1 can (14 oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon


PLACE water, rice and cinnamon stick pieces in small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover. Cook for 12 to 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Remove cinnamon stick pieces. Stir in evaporated and sweetened condensed milks, raisins, vanilla extract and salt; bring to a boil. Stir a small portion of rice mixture into eggs. Add egg mixture to rice mixture; mix well with wire whisk. Bring to a boil. Cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. Serve warm or chilled. Sprinkle with cinnamon before serving.

my boyfriend says his moms is they only one he will eat and it takes forever and gets messed up easily with the sugar milk combo burning, this one was so much easier he didn't know the difference the first time my rice was undercooked so i left it on low for 45 mins and it turned out great i cant wait to use it again

I found it to be too sweet. I cut back on the sugar a bit.

My family loved it! I did not add the raisins, as suggested, since I am not fond of them, nor did I add the salt. I also used two cinnamon sticks and did not remove them. Still, it came out delicious and I have made it several times now!

Very Good

Very sweet, but good. I used 2 C. of leftover rice from the Chinese restaurant and added more ground cinnamon.

This is a family favorite, however instead of removing the cinnamon sticks I leave mine in till the next day (while cooling) and it gives it an authentic flavor.

I love this rice pudding!

This is a rice pudding recipe that Ive used on several ocassions. Its a great side dish or a great sweet treat. I have experimented adding lemon extract and a ground cinnamon inplace of sticks with great results. I still can't get my mom's recipe exact but this an excellent substitute.

I never made rice pudding before. I tried this recipe and thought it was awesome. It was alittle to thick for me so I added extra milk. Next time I'll added a little less condensed milk. Thanks

I just love this recipe. It reminds me of my mothers when I was a kid. But does not take hours to make. I've given this recipe to my sisters and they too think it so good....Keep the good recipes coming.
