Is rice pudding the best comfort dessert of all time? This recipe is convincing enough—it’s simple and satisfying, and comes together in less than half an hour. All you do is combine milk, raw rice, sugar, and a pinch of salt in a saucepan and simmer for about 20 minutes. Stir in a bit of vanilla or almond extract and boom, you’re done. You can serve as is, or dress it up with accessories of your choice: nuts, a dash of cinnamon, dried or fresh fruit—the sky (and the resources of your pantry) is the limit. See our How to Make Pudding video for more inspiration.
