A few weeks ago my youngest was asking me to make some creamed rice for her, a perfect winter dessert. My previous attempts at making creamed rice was cooking the rice normally (with water) then stirring through some cream and condensed milk prior to serving, however I wanted to try to find a ‘creamy’ creamed rice recipe. I asked my lovely readers on facebook if they can share their favourite recipe. I was overwhelmed with the response, thank you all so much. I am going to add them all below.
- 1L full Cream milk
- ⅔ cup castor sugar
- ½ cup arborio rice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Bring milk and sugar to boil, stirring gently
- Add rice, stir
- Reduce heat to very low, put lid on saucepan
- Simmer for 1½ to 2 hours
- Do not stir for the first 30 min
- From 30 minutes stir regularly to avoid clumping
- When milk is absorbed remove from heat, add vanilla
I used Vanilla Paste to give it a rich vanilla flavour.

- Creamed Rice
3/4 cup Arborio Rice
1-1 1/2 cups milk powder
1 litre water
1/2 – 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2-4 tablespoons sugar to taste
Put all in pan and bring to boil.
Stir thoroughly put the lid on and turn off the element. Leave on hotplate covered and no peeking for 30 mins.
Check that grains are soft and plump. If not then reheat to boiling stir replace lid and leave for another 30 mins.
I use a electric cooktop so the heat remains in the element but on a gas cooktop you may have to repeat the process.
The trick is NOT to lift the lid til the 30 mins is up.
Leave with lid on to cool for approx 1.5 hours ( the longer you leave undisturbed the better it is. Store in fridge once cooled and heat to enjoy.
- I use a modified version of the masterchef recipe. 1 cup arborio rice, 3 cups milk, vanilla to taste. Cook until the milk is absorbed and the rice is cooked. Add 1/2 tbspn caster sugar right at the end – otherwise the rice won’t cook properly (a masterchef tip). I serve it with naturally sweetened (no added sugar) raspberry jam stirred in. Yumm and pretty good for diabetics too
- I use to have this one when I was a little girl and now I make this one my girls : boil rice drain water add a full tin of condensed milk and a few drops of vanilla essence (or to taste) stir till all mix (on the stove) and to temperature you like ( I love warm to hot)
- CHEAT: Cook rice in a rice cooker and add condensed milk. Sprinkle with Cinnamon. EASY EASY EASY… YUM.
