Our kids are huge fans of rice pudding, and although we have made it several times in the Instant Pot, this past experience is probably one of the best we’ve done yet.
One of the first books we picked up when we got our Instant Pot over a year and a half ago was The Great Big Pressure Cooker Book. The book is pretty incredible because it gives you a variation for both the electric and stove top cooker.
Believe it or not, I do have both.
I prefer my Instant Pot (electric) pressure cooker, simply for the fact that I don’t have to supervise it like I would the stovetop pressure cooker. The stovetop pressure cooker is really scary to me, and so it hibernates in my kitchen cabinet ~ I may have used it less than a handful of times since I picked it up years ago.
While the original recipes we used to make rice pudding were great, our kids love a really creamy rice pudding – if I make this at night, they’ll eat it after dinner, and again for breakfast, AND want to take it to school too in their lunchbox.
If I had to pick one word to describe this rice pudding it would be “creamier.”
I love vanilla so we added quite a bit to it to give it even more flavor. Overall, it’s one of the most uncomplicated recipes, and we’re adding to our master list of over 50 Instant Pot Recipes!
