  • 1 c uncooked rice
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1 c water
  • 1.5 tbsp butter
  • 2 c milk 2% or whole is best
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4-1/2 c evaporated milk add 1/4 c. first and at the end if you want more add the additional 1/4 c. until desired texture is achieved
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract - optional
  • pinch of nutmeg - optional
  • pinch of cinnamon - optional


  • Put Instant Pot on saute and add butter until melted. 
  • Add rice and stir so rice is coated. 
  • Add milk, water, vanilla, cinnamon, almond extract if desired and sugar. Stir until combined. 
  • Put lid on IP and close steam valve. 
  • Set to manual, pressure, high, for 14 minutes (if you like your rice more turgid set it for 12). 
  • When done do a quick release 
  •  In a small bowl whisk egg and 1/4 c evaporated milk together. 
  • Spoon a spoonful of rice pudding mixture into egg mixture and stir, add another warm spoonful of rice mixture and stir. 
  • Then add bowl full of egg mixture into your IP or pressure cooker and set to saute. 
  • Allow to get hot enough where it bubbles for about 30-60 seconds, stir slowly when it starts to bubble so it doesn't stick to bottom. Add more evaporated milk if desired.
  • It will begin to thicken. 
  • When it has reached the perfect consistency for you pour contents into a bowl or small serving bowls immediately so it doesn't continue to cook and get a bit mushy.
  • Serve warm or chilled, top with cinnamon or nutmeg.
