Although traditionally made in a pot or baking dish, it is also possible to make old-fashioned style rice pudding in a rice cooker. The rice is cooked initially, then the other ingredients are added and cooked using both the "Cook" and "Keep Warm" settings until the rice pudding achieves the proper consistency.
Rice pudding is a dessert dish popular in many parts of the world. A typical rice pudding is made from rice and a dairy product, such as milk. The dish is often sweetened with sugar, flavored with spices like cinnamon or nutmeg and features add-ins like raisins and nuts. Eggs are sometimes added as well to help thicken the dish.
