  • 1 cup of white {normal} rice.
  • ¾ cup of white sugar.
  • 2 stick of cinnamon.
  • 5 cups of milk (Whole milk)
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1 can of Sweetened Condensed milk.
  • Cinnamon in powder.


  • In a big pot stir the rice, sugar, cinnamon sticks, milk and water and mix everything with a wooden spoon. Bring to a simmer over low heat and leave it for around 2 hours mixing every now and then.
  • It should get thick and the rice very soft. Then it will be ready.
  • Before putting it away stir the condensed milk and mix.
  • Put it away and wait until it’s cool and put it on a glass bowl that you can put in the fridge.
  • It’s ready to eat. I usually wait until next day to eat it because it tastes better. When serving add some powdered cinnamon and it’s good to go!


This Rice Pudding tastes so good. I know that people change some things depending on the country. For example in Spain they add orange peel, in Venezuela, they add some cloves, and so on. But I don’t like any of them so I make it simple!.
