Apple Rice Pudding


Now that the apple season is upon us, it’s time to make those comforting fall apple recipes! This Apple Rice Pudding recipe is one of my favorites as it makes for a simple and delicious fall dessert. It features delicate apple and cinnamon flavor and addictive browned butter crunchy topping. Actually, this rice pudding is the ultimate comfort food and perfect breakfast, snack, or light dessert. To make it even more special, serve with a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream on top. Alternatively, sprinkle each serving with more cinnamon to keep it light.

For this recipe, I call for cooked white rice. If you don’t happen to have leftover rice on hand, have no fear. Just combine 1 cup rice, 2 cups water, ½ teaspoon salt, and 1 tablespoon butter in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, and simmer covered for about 20 minutes. Or you can opt to use a rice cooker instead.

Steps to make Apple Rice Pudding


Heat oven and prepare casserole dish


Preheat the oven to 350 °F and grease the bottom and sides of a 9x13x2-inch casserole dish.


Toast bread crumbs


In a medium skillet over medium heat, melt 4 tablespoons butter. Once the butter is slightly browned, add ½ cup bread crumbs and constantly stir until lightly toasted and golden brown, then remove from heat and set aside.


Assemble pudding


In a large mixing bowl, combine diced apples with ⅓ cup sugar and ½ teaspoon cinnamon. Stir in 2 cups cooked rice and ¼ cup raisins. Reserve 2 tablespoons of bread crumbs for topping and stir in the remaining bread crumbs into the apple rice mixture. Drizzle 3 tablespoons milk over and stir to combine.




Place the mixture in the prepared casserole dish and sprinkle reserved 2 tablespoons of bread crumbs over the top. Cover tightly with foil and bake the pudding until the apples are tender, about 35 minutes.



Serve warm or cold, and enjoy!
