One of my husband’s favorite desserts is rice pudding. He loves it with cinnamon and raisins, so, that is how I make it for him.
This Instant Pot Pressure Cooker Rice Pudding with cinnamon and raisins is inspired by my husband’s favorite rice pudding recipe his mom used to make for him.
It is so easy to make in the Instant Pot and Pressure Cooker, you won’t believe it. I’ve gotten a bit carried away with making rice pudding. It’s just kind of fun to make, really. Hehehehehehe.
My Pressure Cooker Creamy Coconut Rice Pudding is loaded with several coconut flavors. My Piña Colada Rice Pudding is a bit naughty, as the pineapple is soaked in rum. You will feel like you are on vacation in the tropics.
There are not many ingredients and can have this ready in under 30 minutes.
If you prefer whole milk, use whole milk. 🙂 If you don’t like Cinnamon, don’t add it. 🙂
What is the Best Rice for Rice Pudding?
- I find that Arborio Rice rice makes a very creamy Instant Pot Pressure Cooker Rice Pudding.
- A short grain rice can be used as well, but you may need a bit extra milk an extra minute of cooking to make it as creamy as arborio.
Florida Crystals Demerara Sugar is especially good in Instant Pot Pressure Cooker Rice Pudding as it helps to give the rice pudding a more intense flavor, rather than a cloyingly sweet flavor.
Fresh Cinnamon Sticks or ground cinnamon can be used, although it can be left out for plain rice pudding.
The Demerara Sugar will give the rice pudding a bit of a creamy color, rather than stark white.
How to Make Instant Pot Rice Pudding.
- Rice, sugar and water are first cooked in the Instant Pot.
- Fresh eggs and milk are whisked together and slowly combined with the cooked rice.
You won’t believe how easy this is to make.
Slowly pour the egg mixture into Pressure Cooker cooking pot, stirring as you go.
Select the Sauté or Browning function and allow pudding to come to a slow boil, stirring constantly.
Continue to whisk for just one minute.
I like to use my Rosle Flat Whisk (if you haven’t noticed by now) to make sure the eggs and rice mix together evenly and without clumps, while the pudding is coming to a boil.
When the pudding starts to a very soft boil, continue whisking for one more minute.
Remove the pudding from the Pressure Cooker and continue to mix for another minute.
If using raisins, add them in here and incorporate them into the pudding. Mixed dried fruit would be fabulous in the Rice Pudding too!
The pudding will thicken as it cools, so don’t be alarmed at the consistency.
