Cinnamon Sugar Rice. Great for dessert. Simple. Easy. Kids love it. Heck. I love it.
Cinnamon sugar rice is super easy. And tasty.
One of my favorite desserts when I was young was Cinnamon Sugar Rice. Whenever we had rice for supper, my mom always let us have it for dessert. I loved it. It's a bit like rice pudding without the effort. August 9 is National Rice Pudding Day.
This was a time long before we had those new-fangled appliances, and microwaves, so we had to eat our supper fast to be able to have our rice hot with cinnamon, sugar, and milk. But we all absolutely loved this simple dessert. Now, you can have it any old time you want. Just make extra rice the next time you serve it for supper, and save some for dessert to reheat in the microwave.

This is about as easy as you can get for a dessert. Warm the rice, sprinkle with a little bit of sugar, sprinkle with cinnamon, and top with milk. It's so delicious!
What You Need
The easiest way to make rice is in a Rice Cooker (affiliate link). We have an old-fashioned kind that cooks on top of the stove, but I have used the electric ones and they are SO EASY. If you don't have a Rice Cooker, I recommend you get one now. Your life will be so much easier, especially if you have kids. Pretty much foolproof. And, of course, you will need cinnamon.

Erik, we add milk to make it a warm cereal-type dessert. It makes it nice and creamy. What would you add?
This is a Spanish dish called Arroz con Leche!!!!
It is similar to Arroz con Leche, but the rice is not cooked with the milk. Since you cook the rice first (usually for another meal) and simply warm it up, the rice is generally not as creamy as in Arroz con Leche. Both are super good, though!
