Old Fashioned Baked Rice Pudding

This simple rice pudding is finished in the oven instead of on the stove. It is comfort food at it's finest.

     Take your taste buds on a trip to the good old days with a bite of rice pudding.  The custard in this version is baked to perfection.  The edges are slightly golden and it is the perfect balance of sweet. The raisins and rice add great texture for a yummy treat.


    I had some extra egg yolks after making macaron. I am not one to just throw perfectly good food away, so I had to come up with something.  So, I added a little extra rice to the pot I already had going for the golumpki and dessert was born!

      A lot of rice pudding recipes call for it to be chilled.  I like mine warm.

    The still warm custard full of rice, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon can't be beat.  I normally don't add the raisins, but happened to have them on hand.  So, I figured why not?!

    I made it with an organic brown rice I buy in super bulk... but my husband would have preferred white rice.  (He also prefers white bread, pasta etc. but he rarely gets his way!)

     Either way you decide to go, you are sure to win.  This is like a step back in time and a warm hug all wrapped in one.



     If you like rice pudding, check out my wholesome banana baked pudding. It is a creamy stovetop version sweetened by bananas.
