Depending upon whether rice pudding is made on the stove top or in the oven, the dish takes either 30 minutes or one hour and 45 minutes to make. For instance, the Food Network's recipe for Rockin' Rice Pudding needs five minutes prep time and 25 minutes on the burner.
Rockin' Rice Pudding appeared on the show "Food 911." In addition to rice and milk, the recipe calls for butter, raisins, grated lemon, vanilla and cinnamon. The Food Network also has Paula Deen's recipe for Baked Rice Pudding. Though it only takes five minutes to mix, the pudding is in the oven for 90 minutes. The dessert then has to cool a bit before it is cut.
