Sweet Rice for EFM Variety Rice Series

This use to be my favorite breakfast when I would stay at my auntie's house...I looked so forward to Sunday morning's and this rare treat! I have added raisins, cinnamon, and nuts before but this is the way I ate this growing up.

 Simple, without many ingredients, but a favorite of mine!

I am sending this to EFM - Variety Rice Series hosted by SriLekha.

Ingredients:
• 2 1/4 cup water
• 1 cup starchy white rice
• 1/4 cup stick butter
• 1/4 cup milk
• 1/4 cup sugar
• 1 tsp. vanilla extract
• salt to taste
• brown sugar to sprinkle

Method:

Bring water, rice & salt to a boil. Reduce heat, stir and cover, simmering for 10 minutes. Stir once more, replace lid and simmer 10 more minutes. At this point, stir in the rest of ingredients until blended. Sprinkle with brown sugar and enjoy!
