Instant Pot Rice Pudding
Instant Pot Rice Pudding... or as I like to call it I.P.R.P hahah because it is too good not to! This Rice Pudding is so quick and easy to make thanks to the Instant Pot! This recipe is a one pot dish and everyone who tries it loves it! It's an easy dessert or a sweet treat, with just the right amount of sweet to cinnamon flavor. Make it with me!
Last year, I turned a classic recipe for Mango Sticky Rice into an Instant Pot recipe and the crowd went wild! This recipe has thousands of views and reviews because it is so easy and it's seriously delicious! I knew I wanted to make another "rice" dessert in my IP and Rice Pudding came to mind. I love the way that it turned out!
My favorite thing about the Instant Pot is that every recipe is a one pot recipe! That little sauté button on the front is one of my best friends! It's great for cooking onions and garlic, browning meat, and so much more! You will be using the sauté feature in this recipe.
For this recipe, I used long grain white rice! You can use any white rice that you have on hand and it will work. You may have to adjust the stirring time at the end while the rice thickens, but thats it!
As an optional addition, you can add raisins or any nut to this dish if you want it to have a little more bite! I prefer it without!
Instant Pot Rice Pudding
Yields 6 servings
1 cup uncooked white rice
1 1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 cups whole milk
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
additional cinnamon to garnish
- To the Instant Pot, add white rice, water, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir.
- Lock the lid, set the valve to seal, and manually set the pressure for 10 minutes. Allow 10 minutes for the Instant Pot to come to pressure before it starts counting down & cooking.
- While the rice is cooking, in a small bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, sugar, and vanilla.
- When the Instant Pot chimes, quick release the pressure by turning the valve from sealing to venting.
- Slowly add the milk mixture to the rice in the Instant Pot, stirring quickly so that the eggs don't scramble.
- Turn the Instant Pot to sauté and continue to mix until rice thickens. This usually takes between 5 to 10 minutes, depending on your desired consistency.
- When the rice is thick and milk is absorbed, the pudding is ready to serve. Garnish with additional cinnamon.
Optional: Stir in raisins or nuts for a little more bite.
