  • 1 bag Success® White Rice
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup miniature marshmallows (optional)


  • Rice pudding comes in many varieties these days, but sometimes there’s nothing like a tried and true classic. Our Vanilla Raisin Rice Pudding is a traditional dish that’s sure to become a family favorite.

    Step 1

  • Prepare rice according to package directions. Meanwhile, crack eggs in a large mixing bowl and beat with a fork. Set aside.

    Step 2

  • Combine rice, milk, sugar, raisins, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium saucepan set over medium heat. Bring to a gentle boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low and continue to cook until raisins are plump, about 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat.

    Step 3

  • Carefully, pour hot rice mixture into beaten eggs, a little at a time, stirring constantly. Keep adding rice mixture and stirring well until all liquid is added to eggs.

    Step 4

  • Return egg mixture to saucepan and return to stove. Bring to a slow simmer over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and continue to stir 1 more minute.

    Step 5

  • Cool mixture for 10 minutes at room temperature. Garnish with marshmallows, if using.

    Recipe Tip

  • Serve this rice pudding warm, or if you prefer, cover it tightly with plastic wrap and chill it in the refrigerator for 1 hour before serving.

The Proof Is in This Pudding

This recipe is perfect for those who like a sugary bite now and then, without going overboard on the sweetness. Made with Success® White Rice, this Vanilla Raisin Rice Pudding is perfect for breakfast, as a snack, or as dessert. The delicate notes of vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg, paired with chewy raisins and the creamy texture of the cooked rice make for an incredibly delightful treat any time of day.

While this recipe may take just a bit of finesse to get right, it is truly worth the effort. Most of the steps are quite simple. The one step you’ll want to complete slowly and carefully is introducing the warm mixture into the beaten eggs. This has to be done a little at a time while continuously mixing well to prevent the eggs from scrambling. Once you’ve completed this step and have a creamy, non-scrambled consistency, you return the mixture to the heat for a short time longer. Then, voilà! You’ll have a wonderful dessert to share and enjoy.

The only thing left to decide is whether you’ll enjoy this dish as a sweet, warm treat topped with marshmallows or whipped cream, or as a chilled snack with a light dusting of cinnamon? Either way, we guarantee you’ll love the taste of this simple dish.
