This recipe is simple yet results in superb comfort food. We have it as a family dessert or I sometimes make it if I have a "sickie" who can't be tempted to eat anything else. It's an old recipe that's worth repeating.


  1. Place rice, milk, sugar and vanilla into an ovenproof dish and stir well.
  2. Cut butter into small lumps and add to the dish.
  3. Sprinkle generously with grated nutmeg.
  4. Bake in a 150ºC oven for about 2 hours.

Used 1/2 c Arborio rice. So easy to make this ultra comforting dish. Mmmmm.

I liked this, it was very easy to make. I did find that even though I was a little conservative with the sugar (New Year's Resolution)that the end result was a little too sweet for my preference, and that it wasn't as creamy as I expected, but maybe I should have made this in a smaller dish so that the pudding would have been deeper and maybe reatined a more creamy consistancy. I added plenty of nutmeg, both during the preperation and after it came out of the oven. Please see my rating system: I would make this again, but with less sugar and experimenting with dishes to see if that gives a creamier result. Thanks!
