Recipe by Gayle M

This is absolutely the BEST rice pudding I've ever found. VERY custardy and creamy at the same time.

Gayle, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU. I love my stovetop rice pudding and have been making it for almost 20 years, but for almost that long I have been searching for an oven-baked rice pudding that was creamy and custardy. And now I've found it! I don't usually like rice puddings made with long-grain rice -- they're usually too chewy and too dry -- but this was absolutely superb. It is very moist with lots of custard. The instructions are clear and simple and the recipe was easy to prepare. I sprinkled cinnamon on the individual servings as I dished it out. Now I know what I will be doing with all my leftover rice -- making this yummy dessert! Thanks so much for posting this recipe!
