Can you make Rice Pudding in a Slow Cooker?
Yes! This rice pudding recipe lends itself perfectly to the low-and-slow cooking method of your crockpot.
Start by adding most of your ingredients to your 4-quart slow cooker and mixing. Cover and cook on high 2 1/2 – 4 hours or until the rice is nice and tender and most of the liquid is absorbed.
Then, whisk the egg in a separate bowl. Take 1/2 cup of your hot rice mixture and add slowly to the egg. This tempers the egg and starts the cooking process. Mix well and slowly add back to your slow cooker, stirring constantly as you go.
Cover and let it cook 1 minute more. Then, turn off your slow cooker and let is stand for 5 minutes. Stir in your cinnamon and sour cream and enjoy this dessert served warm. You can eat as-is or top with your favorite fruit or nuts.
