Have Your Dessert Ready Without You Doing Almost Anything, Can Not Be Easier

Having dessert after a meal makes the time at the table even more enjoyable. And one of my family’s, especially my little ones’, favourite dessert is the rice pudding.

Rice pudding is very easy to make, needs just a few ingredients and is extremely delicious. Lately, I started making it in my multi-cooker, which makes its preparation even easier.

Have you tried preparing this sweet dessert in your multi-cooker or slow-cooker? What flavours did you use?

I am presenting a recipe from one of my favourite cook books – 200 Light Slow Cooker Recipes.

This Rice pudding with honey can be made in the multi-cooker or slow-cooker and is extra scrumptious. It is smooth, not too sweet, creamy.

I’ve tried making the rice pudding using the rice program with my multi-cooker, but I like it better when I use the Boil program better, set for between 30-40 minutes (until the pudding starts to thicken and the rice is really soft). My kids also like it when the rice pudding is really well set and not runny, but you just need to stop the preparation when it gets to your desired thickness, just bare in mind that the rice would absorb even more of the liquid after you stop cooking it.

Try it for yourself and make it the way you like it the best!

    I used my multi cooker on rice mode and it boiled over and made a hell of a mess. Any help please as to why this happened?

      Hi Tracey, sorry this happened. Because I am not a great fan of rice, I always follow strictly the instructions how to use the rice program – put rice, add enough water to cover it, start RICE button. How long did you cook it? Did you put enough milk/water?
      It never happened to me, hope you still find the appliance helpful (even if not for cooking rice that time) 🙂

    Hi there,
    thanks for this recipe, it sounds simple.

    May I ask your opinion, what if I incorporated more exotic flavors like mango, coconut and raisins.

    Have you ever tried this flavor combos?
    And, will the quality and taste be affected if I do not use risotto rice?

    THank You

      My kids don’t like mango and that is why I rarely use it. Use pineapple with the coconut, it is a lovely combination.

      I would suggest to use pudding rice for best results, but even if you use plain basmati rice this dessert would still be yummy. My grandma always used only basmati rice when making i.

    Hi! I love rice pudding but normally I just leave it for ‘special occasions’ (such as weekends haha!) because it just takes me SO long to prepare it…. pudding rice takes ages to soften and you have to constantly stir it on the hob and I simply can’t be bothered. This is such a good idea to use a slow cooker for rice pudding….never thought of that! Thank you 🙂

    1. Ellie

      Hi Demi. I, like you, have always postponed making rice pudding mainly because sometimes when preparing it in a pot, if not stirring it constantly, the rice at the bottom burns and them the whole lot is ruined. I am happy I found this very easy to do recipe using my multi cooker – it doesn’t burn and you always get the result you want. Preparing rice pudding in the slow cooker is the same, just takes a little longer 🙂

      Enjoy your day. All the best

    I’m a very lazy cook and I love dessert so this recipe looks very tempting. I never tried rice pudding before but the pictures make it look so good.
    Have to give it a try one day. 40 min seems a very short time for a slow cooker or is that only for the multi-cooker?

    1. Ellie

      Hi Jade. Yes, 40 minutes is for the multi cooker. For the slow cooker, it’s best to follow the manufacturer’s instructions, but it would usually take between 2 and 4 hours to have this recipe prepared (depending on the appliance)

      But if you put the ingredients in the pot earlier and set the timer, you could have this dessert in time to enjoy it after your meal.

      All the best

    Rice pudding is one of my favorite desserts.. I’m so glad I came across this simple recipe! My mother makes rice pudding on her stove top but she loves using her slow cooker as well so this will be right up her alley. Are there any more dessert recipes for the multi cooker?

    1. Ellie

      Hi Justin. Up until recently, I’ve only made cakes and creme caramel using my multi cooker. Every time I use this appliance, it prepares really delicious meals with no hassle from my side.

      If your mum keeps her slow cooker cooking book that comes with the appliance, there are usually a lot of suggestions how to prepare different meals – breakfasts, main meals, desserts, etc.

      I personally use this recipe book – 200 Slow Cooker Recipes and I just love it.

      I am sure you can find something to your taste, incl. desserts 🙂

      All the best from me.
