Pressure Cooker Rice Pudding
Rice pudding is such a classic recipe from my childhood. This rich an creamy rice pudding is just fantastic and SO EASY to make when you use your Crock-Pot Express multi-cooker.
In this recipe we used aborio rice, because this rice adds a nice creamy texture to the rice pudding. You see, aborio rice is the variety of rice used to make risotto so it is designed to break down a little and add a nice creamy starch to the pudding.
Pressure cooking the rice takes just a matter of minutes. And then you use the saute feature of the multi-cooker to thicken the rice with milk and eggs to create this fantastically rich pudding.
And then little vanilla extract adds just the right amount of flavor to the rice pudding.
The pudding will naturally thicken as it cools. You can eat the rice pudding warm or chilled. I prefer it chilled myself, because that is just how I always ate it as a kid.
To take this rich and creamy dessert over the top, add a dollop of whipped cream and maybe a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg.
