This recipe is wonderful--simple ingredients and very easy to prepare. The total baking time is over 2 hours, so we like to start this early and time it to be finished, hot out of the oven, around halfway through a DVD movie. It makes a great intermission snack. The smell as the pudding cooks is so mouth-watering! Delicious served cold too, if there are any leftovers.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees and set oven rack to a middle position.
  2. Butter or spray an oven-proof casserole dish (6 cup) with non-stick spray. Mix the milk, rice, sugar and salt in the casserole.
  3. Bake, uncovered, for 2 hours at 300 degrees, stirring every 30 minutes. While mixture is in the oven, let raisins sit in a small bowl of warm water to soften them up.
  4. After two hours, drain raisins and add to pudding. Stir in the vanilla and nutmeg and bake another 30 minutes.
  5. (Depending on your preference, the consistency of the pudding can be firmed up with a little more rice, or less firm with more milk. Oven temperatures vary, so keep an eye on your pudding and adjust baking time accordingly.).
