Omas Milchreis / Rice Pudding

Omas Milchreis ( Granny's Rice pudding) is made in German style the way my granny and my mum prepared it for us since I can remember. Rice pudding is known under many different names 

and popular all over the world. It is prepared in many different variations depending in what part of the world it is served. However it is the tradition in most countries to serve it as sweet dish usually with fragrant additions like orange zest, raisins, cardamom, vanilla, cinnamon, jams and fruit.

  • 4 tbs sugar
  • 1 tbs unsalted butter
