How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 300
  • Cook rice in salted water till tender, then drain.
  • In a medium bowl beat eggs slightly. Stir in sugar, vanilla, raisins, lemon rind, nutmeg & cinnamon.
  • In another bowl combine milk & cooked rice.
  • Add rice mixture to egg mixture.
  • Pour into a 2 quart casserole pan. Sprinkle with more nutmeg and cinnamon to your taste. Then dot with butter. (I add one cinnamon stick in the middle)
  • Set casserole in a baking pan; fill baking pan with about 1" hot water
  • Bake uncovered about 1 hour and 25 minutes, stirring once after the first half hour.
  • To avoid breaking the top of crust, insert spoon at edge of pudding, draw gently back and forth along bottom of the casserole. Near the end of baking time, insert a silver knife in center of custard, if it comes out clean, custard is done.
  • Remove casserole from baking pan and cool.

    Made this today don't think I'll be making it again. Not that is bad but we like my old recipe much better. And this one has way to much cinnamon and we love cinnamon. And to anyone that is planning on making this decrease the cinnamon by half, can always add more later.

    I made this for the office and home, and what a hit! It's the best I've had! The only thing I did was take off the skin, and had to bake it about an hour longer. This pudding is so creamy and deliciious. It's now a staple in my recipe book!

    I am trying this one tomorrow. Sounds just like the recipe my Italian neighbor use to make. She was 86 years when she use to make this for me and it was "WONDERFUL"! I will definately let you know how it turns out!
