Rice Pudding with Cherries

March 31, 2014

I don’t know about you,  but many nights after dinner is over I want a dessert, but I’ve failed to plan for one.  Usually I whip up an Apple Crisp in a hurry, allowing it to bake while we eat. But lately,  I’ve wanted something a little more comforting. That’s when I remembered the rice pudding Mama made when I was a child.

Comfort food should remind you of the comforts of growing up. You remember ~ that time in your life when you had very few responsibilities? Someone else did all the worrying? Yeah, that time.  That’s what a comfort food should do. It’s a little mini escape.  I’ve been wanting one of those lately. That’s when I remembered  Mama’s Rice Pudding.

So, do you need an escape?  A little comforting? Need a dessert in hurry?  Leftover rice in the fridge?  Easy Stove Top Rice Pudding to the rescue. It’s easy and comforting and delicious. Easy Stove Top Rice Pudding with Cherries is right up there with my  Apple Bread Pudding for a comfort dessert.

All you need is 2 cups of cooked rice, eggs, milk, butter, cinnamon, vanilla and sugar. And a bag of dried cherries.
