Behold the joy of rice-cookers!

March 24, 2008

I was bored, and procrastinating, and bored.

And when you’re feeling bored, and you’re procrastinating – what’s better than rice pudding? Nothing really.

But I’m way to lazy to sit and stir the rice for 40 minutes as it absorbs the loyal ingrediants.






For this recipe you need to have a decent rice cooker – I used my housemate’s rice cooker, it looks like this one –

Nothing too fancy, but its a great rice cooker nonetheless. I altered the rice pudding recipe from “how to cook everything” and came up with this sassy lady.

“Coconut rice pudding – because its just one of those days”

1 cup of short grain rice

1 1/2 cups of water

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1 15 oz. can of lite coconut milk

1 /2 cup of milk

1/2 tsp. ginger

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. vanilla

1/3 cup of sugar


1) Combine rice water and salt in the rice cooker bowl.

2) Push the cook button.

3) When the rice is done, fluff it, and stir in the remaining ingredients.

4) Push the cook button. This time as its cooking, open the cooker a few times to reincorporate all the ingredients. Cook until it reaches your desired rice pudding consistency.

Rocket science, right?



  1. looks good. i’m tempted to try it. but its no tofu pie.

  2. oooh, rice cookers! I LOVE MINE. Like, its almost an secret affair, love. I’ve never done much with it, ‘cept rice, ya know? This looks kinda fun and different to do with mine. Hrm.
