Baked Rice Pudding Recipe

Baked Rice Pudding Recipe
Baked Rice Pudding is a recipe that takes me all of the way back to my childhood. Slightly sweet and creamy custard with tender rice and plump raisins, this is a dessert that satisfies the soul and the body. It is a great ending for a Meatless Monday meal, since the rice and milk help to complete the proteins in beans. If you want more of a custard top, use the lesser amount of rice. To have rice almost all of the way through, use a higher amount of rice. Be prepared to be surprised. This dish is so easy to make and can be served hot or cold!

You may bake the pudding in a Pyrex casserole, a deep dish pie pan, or as my mother used to do, in an iron skillet. If you are going to serve the pudding "family style" at the dinner table, a glass dish makes it look appealing. If the iron skillet is your choice, dip it up into individual serving dishes. Strawberries or raspberries make a nice garnish.

Baked Rice Pudding Recipe

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Ingredients :

1 – 2 cups of cooled cooked rice (It's okay to use leftover rice.)
3 eggs
¾ cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 ½ cups of milk (I like to use whole milk or part evaporated milk for richer flavor.)
½ cup raisins
Butter to grease the pan
Cinnamon (optional)


In a medium bowl, add the cooked, cooled rice. If you want more of a custard top, use the lesser amount (1 cup) of rice. To have rice almost all of the way through, use a higher amount (2 cups) of rice. By hand, using a fork or whisk, stir the eggs into the rice, one at a time, until they are completely mixed. Add the sugar and vanilla into the egg and rice mixture and stir until it is blended. Slowly add the milk, whisking all of the time. Butter your choice of baking dish. You may also use non-stick cooking spray, but the butter adds richness to the dish. Pour the pudding into the baking dish. Distribute the raisins evenly over the dish. Sprinkle the top with cinnamon to taste. This is an optional step. Put the dish into the preheated oven. Bake for 35-45 minutes until the center is set and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Do not over bake or your pudding will be watery. Baking times depend on your oven and the choice of baking dishes. An iron skillet usually takes less time to bake the pudding.

Cool your pudding under refrigeration, since it contains eggs. To quickly cool it, I put it in my freezer with the quick freeze option engaged. It takes about 20 minutes to cool using this method.
