No One Will Ever Get Bored Of Grandma’s Old Fashioned Custard Style Rice Pudding!

44 665,604

Rice pudding.  A wonderful creation.  I do not have any idea who possibly came up with the idea of throwing sugar and milk into rice, but I am thankful they did, because I never would have. I am the worst at planning and preparing recipes that do not seem traditional, at best.  But with time, I have learned that it does not need to be so.  Unconventional recipes can sometimes turn out to be the very best.

That’s what my grandma used to say anyway. I remember years and years ago, when I was a little girl, my grandma was always in the kitchen.  She never took a cooking class in her life, but that woman cooked like a top notch chef.

She always had something utterly delicious on the table, and every single time you would step into her house, there was some sort of sweets ready for you to devour. I am not sure if it was always so, or if she just made sure to have stuff for when we came over.  Anyhow, my grandma would very often make this custard rice pudding and it would knock my socks off!

This is the ultimate comfort food and your family will be very grateful if you make this for them!

    What is domino sugar and MacArthur milk.? Thank you. I’m in Canada and I have never seen these items

    1. Barb says

      It is just a brand of sugar. You can use any kind of granulated sugar.

    2. Jean says

      It’s a dairy in Florida and a Dominos is a sugar company
      I think the milk is available @ the Target stores

    3. Kassy says

      Domino sugar is regular white sugar. Domino is just a brand name. As for MacArthur, the same thing. It is just regular whole milk with MacArthur as a brand name.

      I thought initially MacArthur milk was a sweetened condensed milk that is used for this recipe as it is used in a number of desert recipes. But when I typed in MacArthur Milk on my browser, the search page opened with links and pictures and is easily identifiable as whole milk.

      Type in rice pudding condensed milk on your browser and click the search button or click enter. Your search page will give you quite a few recipes to view. Good luck! Kathy

    Domino’s Sugar is a brand and I bet McArthur’s milk is too

    the Domino sugar and McArthur milk are name brands that is found in the area where the recipe author resides. White grandulated sugar and whole milk common to your local will do nicely.
