Philadelphia Rice Pudding

READY IN: 2hrs 55mins
Recipe by Gillian Spence

From Jeff Smith's "The Frugal Gourmet Cooks American" this recipe most closely resembles the English rice pudding I grew up with. PS: You're meant to eat it warm you silly bunch of yanks! ;)

Great tasting rice pudding, & what the heck ~ It's as satisfying cold as it is warm! Easy to put together, & just wait for it to cook ~ Nothing could be more simple! Thanks for sharing your nice English recipe with us yanks (& this laid back West Coast one, at that)! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Mix all of the ingredients together and place in a 3-quart covered saucepan. Bring to a simmer on the top of the stove and then place, covered, in the preheated oven.
  3. Bake without disturbing or stirring for 2 hours and 45 minutes. The pudding will almost caramelize and become a pale golden color.
