Mom's Secret Recipe: Microwave Rice Pudding

This recipe really did come from my mom, and it really was something she made in my childhood. I always have loved it.

Microwave Rice Pudding

dry ingredients in large (8 cup) microwavable casserole dish:
3/4 c sugar
2 tbsp corn starch
1/4 tsp salt

2 1/2 cups milk

3 minutes on high. Stir. Microwave 3 more minutes.

1 egg. Add a little pudding to the egg, mix. Add egg to casserole dish. Mix well. Microwave 1 minute.

2 tbsp butter (optional)
1/2 cup raisins (optional, but recommended)
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups cooked white rice

Microwave 3 minutes. Serve warm or cold.

My microwave doesn't seem to be as powerful as some of the newfangled ones. If you know yours is some kind of superpowered device, cut it back to 80%.

  1. I LOVE rice pudding and my H does not. This simple recipe seems worth the effort since I'm only cooking this dish for 1!
