Cinnamon-Sugar Rice Cereal Delight
2 cups cooked plain rice
2 cups warm milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons sugar (adjust to taste)
Optional: A dash of vanilla extract for extra flavor
Prepare the Rice:
Cook the rice according to package instructions or using your preferred method. Make sure the rice is cooked until it’s soft and fluffy.
Warm the Milk:
In a saucepan, heat the milk over medium heat until it’s warm. Be careful not to bring it to a boil; you just want it to be comfortably warm.
Combine Rice and Milk:
Add the cooked rice to the warm milk, stirring gently to combine. The warmth of the milk will help the rice absorb the liquid, creating a creamy texture.
Add Cinnamon and Sugar:
Sprinkle ground cinnamon evenly over the rice and milk mixture. Stir in the sugar as well. Adjust the amount of sugar to your liking; you can always add more later if needed.
Optional: Vanilla Extract:
For an extra layer of flavor, you can add a dash of vanilla extract to the mixture. Stir well to incorporate.
Simmer and Serve:
Allow the mixture to simmer for a few minutes over low heat, stirring occasionally. This helps the flavors meld together and ensures the cereal is heated through.
Taste and Adjust:
Taste the cereal and adjust the sweetness or cinnamon levels if necessary. Everyone’s preference is different, so make it just the way you like it.
Once the cereal reaches your desired consistency and flavor, remove it from the heat. Spoon it into bowls and enjoy your comforting and nostalgic Cinnamon-Sugar Rice Cereal!
Feel free to get creative with additional toppings like sliced bananas, chopped nuts, or a drizzle of honey for a personalized touch. This recipe is a wonderful blend of simplicity and childhood memories
