Rice pudding is an easy recipe perfect for kids! Rice, milk and eggs are baked together to create a creamy kid friendly treat.
As my kids are starting to get older I’m letting them transition from helping me in the kitchen to doing the actual cooking. I’ve been setting aside some kid friendly recipes for years and it’s been fun to pull them out for the kids. One recipe that is kid friendly is rice pudding.
When letting my kids cook I usually set out the ingredients pre-measured and ready to go. I think my kids are still a little young to be dealing with knives or heat so I cooked the rice myself. I used Uncle Ben’s Boil-in-Bag rice and it would be simple for an older child to make themselves. We are still working on cracking eggs and it’s good to have a separate bowl to catch the shells.
For this rice pudding recipe, you put the rice in your baking dish. Then mix together the milk, egg, sugar and cinnamon. I always use a large bowl for mixing ingredients with the kids so they have plenty of room to mix. Pour the egg and milk mixture over the rice and then bake. That easy! Now, your kids will make a mess. It’s a rule. I have to mentally prepare myself for the mess and once I accept it, I move on and let them have fun cooking.
