Who all has had a bowl of Hot Buttered Sweet Rice handed to them by their loving mama or grandmama?
When my Mama was a little girl, she’d come in from school to find her Granny waiting to hear all about her day.
Knowing that kids were hungry after a long day at school, she’d smile when Mama walked in and sit her down at the table…
And put a bowl in front of her.
Then she’d take some rice from the supper she was preparing and scoop some hot right into that bowl…
And add a pat of butter.
And a sprinkling of sugar.
And give it a good stir.
And Mama would eat that entire bowl of warm, sweet, buttery rice.
Sometimes, the very next day before school, Mama would wake up to find her Granny heating up leftover rice to repeat this for a warm and soothing breakfast before she headed off to school.
It sure was good.
My German granny made this all the time and she added a touch of cinnamon.
That sounds wonderful Lisa!
My uncle was a rice farmer so needless to say we always had rice & with every meal. Buttered sugar rice was definitely one of my favorites.
My grandma used to make this for lunch or just a snack, and it was DELICIOUS!! I have not made it in about three years. I have been thinking about it recently, and I may make it soon. She would also make some “bread” without the yeast cooked on a small sheet tray. The top was nicely browned, and if you added some butter to it right from the oven and ate it right then you were in for a treat. Now I am hungry.
I can’t wait to hear how you liked it once you make this recipe. Since you are hungry 🙂 hope you make it soon!
My mama made this for us on a regular basis, brings me back! If she was still with me I’m sure she would be happy to make me some, as reading about it has made me start to crave it!
