If there’s one thing I can always find leftover in my refrigerator, it’s white rice. A few weeks ago I blogged one of my favorite ways to use it. Well, this, ladies and gents, is the other. Rice pudding is one of the best desserts out there in my book. Rich and filling, homey and comforting.

This version is made on the stove top, and it came together in no time flat. I usually have all the ingredients required on hand, so I can see myself  making this for the nights I want to have dessert – but, don’t want to put forth too much effort. I topped it with a dab of homemade whipped cream, and some fresh ground cinnamon. A perfect, easy dessert for Christmas Eve this year! For an extra kick, soak the raisins in a bit of rum before adding them to the pudding.

    This looks so yummy and I ALWAYS have white rice leftover that gets hard and I throw it away or put it in soup. This sounds wonderful.
