I made this for the first time a few weeks ago. I found it continued to โ€œcookโ€ after the allotted time and in the end, the rice turned out more dry than creamy. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ. Today I used 1/3 cup of rice ( I also used 3 cups of milk and less than 1 tablespoon of brown sugar). Spot on!
Very happy with the result ( nice warm with sliced banana) !

Tried this for the first time, today. I doubled the ingredients and used coconut sugar instead of white sugar. What a hit! Even my daughter, who โ€˜doesnโ€™t like puddingโ€™ went back for seconds! Another win for the slow cooker community!

I made this yesterday substituting full cream milk powder,made up as packet directed,as I was short on milk…worked a treat!


June 12, 2022

Made this for the first time last night, added some sultanas and used coconut sugar. It was pretty good, got plenty of left overs for tonight as there is only 2 of us. Next time I make it I’m going to try using coconut milk as we both love coconut rice and add cinnamon sugar too.

I make this with rice, milk, condensed milk & vanilla essence. For all the sweet tooth lovers!

Will skim milk be ok to use?


March 28, 2022

We love this, I use brown sugar and add a little cinnamon while cooking. One of our favourite desserts.

Do you need to rinse the rice first?


March 7, 2020

Hi, thank you for the recipe – I added two tablespoons of condensed milk at the end of cooking it was delicious. Thank you.

I made this for the first time today. Followed the recipe exactly, cooked in a 1.5L cooker and it was delicious. I will definitely make this again.

I have cooked something similar for years, instead of using reg milk I use Carnation milk and brown sugar instead of white.

Very very close to my grandfathers oven cooked recipe. Went down a treat with vanilla ice cream. Will be making it again. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I made this twice now ๐Ÿ™‚ first time as in the recipe above and was delicious so i did it again tonight and made it adding half a tin of drained pineapple pieces and half a cup of sultanas. its sooo good ๐Ÿ™‚ ( would maybe if anything lessen the amount of sugar when putting in the pineapple next time to make it not so sweet) will be a regular in my household from now on ๐Ÿ™‚

This one is a winner! I have been searching for a recipe for rice pudding that EVERYONE in the family likes for a really long time and, without any luck. After seeing this pop up recently with positive reviews I thought I would give it a try (doubled the recipe and crossed my fingers hoping I had found the one). Well, I hit the jackpot with this one. There was a collective cry of โ€˜Noooooooโ€™ when there was none left for extra helpings. Thank you Trudi for posting this one, itโ€™s a hit with the whole family. Winner, winner rice pudding for after dinner!

This is a winner! Iโ€™ve been looking for a rice pudding recipe that EVERYONE in my family likes and, until I tried this one, have had no luck. Tried this on Saturday (doubled the recipe and crossed fingers it would be the one) and, it was a hit! Winner, winner, rice pudding after dinner! Thank you Trudi for posting this one, there was a collective cry of โ€˜Nooooooooโ€™ when there was none left for more helpings ๐Ÿ™‚

Delicious. I double the recipe and used aborio rice with extra vanilla essence. Hubby and I both love it. Well definately make this again.

Oh Delwyn I’m sorry I’m only just seeing this comment now
How did you go?


October 22, 2017

I usually make rice pudding with leftover cooked rice so just threw in half a cup of already cooked rice. I then realized the rice in this recipe isn’t cooked. Should I double the amount of cooked rice?

Looking forward to trying this, can I use tapioca instead of sago?

This is now a universal family favourite. I have to cook it at least once (or twice) a week – I double the ingredients and it cooks up well in 3 hours. I use the medium size bowl on my Aldi Ambiano Slow Cooker. I add a teaspoon of vanilla essence at the end. Oh Yum!

I love this recipe too. The slow cooker makes the best rice pudding. I use all milk as I like it creamy, and make a double batch so the family can snack on it during the week. I have also made it with sago instead of rice, and a combination of sago and rice and they’re delicious too.


July 7, 2017

I doubled the recipe, used arborio rice, upped the sugar by adding half a cup and vanilla essence once cooked. Cooked on high for 3 hrs and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. Absolutely delicious!


July 4, 2017

Really easy to make although I did cook mine on low rather than high, and it still cooked in 2 hours. I dusted mine with cinnamon sugar to serve and it was delicious!

Such an easy, quick and tasty desert. ๐Ÿ˜‹
Even my family who admit they’re not fans of rice pudding ate it and loved it. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
I used long grain rice as that’s all I had, and I added 1/4 tsp vanilla essence and it was great.
Dusted with drinking chocolate when served. Perfect ๐Ÿ‘Œ
Great for the 1.5 litre SC.
Will definitely make again and again.

lovely made with coconut milk too


June 16, 2017

Im cooking mine with cooking cream and milk and water. I also used orange sugar for flavour and if its a bit blah at the end, ill add a small can of drained crushed pineapple.


February 26, 2017

It’s so simple to make and is the best rice pudding i have had and i love rice pudding the only thing i subsisted was i used margarine instead of butter because i didn’t have any, you need to go the whole 3 hours on high as it doesn’t look as if it’s going to come together until the last 20 minutes and i put in a splash of vanilla essence at the end


August 5, 2016

Use milk only. Start on high and reduced to low after an hour for 2-3 hours.


June 30, 2016

I changed this and had 3/4 cup llong grain rice and grated one fuji apple. I added about 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla bean paste. This took 3&1/2 hours to cook but it was worth the wait.


May 23, 2016

This is not the nicest creamed rice recipe I have made, I found it not real creamy or flavoursome


May 13, 2016

Oh my word, have never made rice pudding before. This was divine, and the whole lot was eaten up and spoons licked! Used short rice instead of medium grain. Plenty sweet enough so no need to add ice cream, additional sugar or raisins. Will definitely be making it again.


April 20, 2016

Can I substitute brown rice instead of white.
Is there a substitute for sugar?


February 10, 2016

Made this today turned out beautiful and creamy was so easy to make the only negative for me was that it lacked flavour it wasn’t sweet enough, if I make it again I would most definitely up the sugar in it and add more vanilla too.

Love this recipe so easy, perfect turn out every time
