If you’ve got 5 minutes to prep, you won’t believe how easy this old fashioned slow cooker rice pudding recipe is to make! Then just relax, or get on with your day and let the slow cooker do the rest!

Old Fashioned Rice Pudding Recipe.  Just saying those words together makes me feel all warm and cozy and inside!  You too?
 

I love to make desserts in my slow cooker or crockpot.  One of our other absolute faves (they are all favorites right?) is our S’mores Crock Pot Chocolate Lava Cake!  It’s amazing.  LOL.

This easy family recipe only takes 5 minutes to put together, and 3 hr and 45 minutes to bake in your slow cooker.  And its amazing served warm or cold!  Your gang will definitely ask for seconds, so make sure you double the recipe!  The smell of the cinnamon, vanilla and creamy pudding while it’s baking are out of this world, just sayin…

You will need….arborio rice, eggs, whole milk, cinnamon, vanilla, and raisins.

OLD FASHIONED RICE PUDDING BACKSTORY

I think slow cooker anything is the perfect way to cook on the weekends and I just love slow cooker desserts!  Kind of a fix it and forget about it, if you know what I mean!  And I do use my slow cooker a lot – as you know from some of my recipes!

Grandma’s old fashioned rice pudding recipe was the best.  I’ve been searching through Grandma’s old recipes and when I found her recipe for a traditional rice pudding, I knew I had to try to make it.  It was a baked rice pudding, which is how they made this cozy comfort food back in the day.

And rice pudding was always one of the ‘dessert choices’ at the local diner.  And it was kept under a glass case, looking like it had been there for quite a while, if you know what I mean. I wonder if their old fashioned rice pudding was made with minute rice? 🙂

So when my sweetie asked me to make him some rice pudding the other day, I kinda went Huh?  It was like karma!  He wanted an old fashioned rice pudding with raisins. 

But of course I should have known that he had found an amazing recipe for me to try, and even better it was a homemade slow cooker rice pudding recipe!  Enough said!

So with all of the ingredients in hand, I set out to put together this awesome old fashioned rice pudding with raisins recipe.  Now this recipe uses whole milk.  You can swap that out for cream, half and half (half milk half cream) some recipes use coconut milk and sweetened condensed milk too.  You can even make rice pudding with buttermilk! But we’re not getting fancy today.  Just plain old fashioned rice pudding.  OK?

TIPS TO MAKE THE VERY BEST OLD FASHIONED RICE PUDDING

  • Pour the rice, milk and sugar into your slow cooker (spray with cooking spray) and cover and cook for 3.5 to 4 hours.
  • Each hour give the rice a stir and cook until the rice is a bit mushy.
  • Follow the recipe instructions exactly. 
  • When that’s done, whisk the eggs together with a ½ cup of the hot rice mixture.  This is called tempering the eggs.
  • Then slowly mix this back into the slow cooker rice mixture.  You need to be careful here, since we don’t want scrambled eggs in our old fashioned rice pudding!
  • Then you can add the raisins (or if you choose dried cranberries, cherries or blueberries!), vanilla, cinnamon.
  • Cook for another 15 minutes.

I have this exact slow cooker by Crock Pot!  The ceramic liner is so easy to clean, and rarely sticks, but I usually spray it anyway.  Mine is grey, but don’t you love this awesome colour!

And that’s it!  We love this warm, but it’s just as good cold, as it retains an overall creaminess both ways. For breakfast, lunch and dinner. 🙂

Enjoy.
