You can buy rice pudding ready-made or as a mix, but nothing beats homemade rice pudding.
As the weather gets cooler, we crave comfort foods. Rice pudding is high on the list of foods that fit the comfort category.
I love it when the pudding is still a bit warm, with sweet cinnamon sprinkled on top.
This recipe is easy to follow and produces delicious, creamy rice pudding.
