Made this for dinner last night and was so pleased at how easy it went together, think I overcooked it (was worried about it being firm) as it was a little dry, but that was my fault and didn't change the taste. I did not use the raisens as I don't care for them, did top with whipped cream. Both DH and I enjoyed it very much. Made for the photo forum - Comfort foods.

I made this last night for dinner. It was quick and easy to make and took around 40 minutes to bake in an 8 in by 8in square dish. I used cranberries instead of the raisins-they looked so pretty when the dish was served. This was just nicely sweet, but all four of us agreed it had way to much rice in it compared to custard-I would halve the amount of cooked rice next time.

I cannot begin to describe the level of pure creamy comfort this afforded us as the snow was piling up around us last night. Perfectly sweet and lovely with added warmth from the nutmeg. Wonderful!

This was so easy and so delicious. I accidentally only used 2 cups of milk instead of 3, but it still turned out great, just a little drier. I would like to make it again with the 3 cups so I can enjoy it in a more custardy style. Topped with homemade whipped cream and it was perfect. I cooked mine in an 8" square pan and it took 40 minutes to cook through.

Well,my grandma didn't make this for me and what did I miss! Made it with raisins and some vanilla extract. It's perfect for my little girls:has carbs, proteins, calcium. Thanks for sharing.

This is a good recipe, but still not like the one my grandma used to make...wish I had hers. The only thing I found overpowering was the nutmeg, I think I will cut it back a little next time. I think I will try using dried cranberries in place of the raisins too... just a personal preference. Made for the Dec. 09 Tag My Recipe game.

Yummy! I loved that there was a lovely custard layer on top. The only change I would make would be to add a little vanilla. Cheers!

Pure comfort food! This is the type of rice pudding I grew up with. My grandmother made it often. I much prefer this custard-type to the ones made without eggs! I left the raisins out. The amount of nutmeg was perfect! I did have to cook it about 10 minutes longer than stated.

Very good rice pudding. I made this for our Sunday Mother's Day Brunch, as my DM loves rice pudding. I didn't add the raisins either(personal preference) I did however add about 1/4 teaspoon almond extract. Also, because my oven sometimes runs hot when cooking puddings, I decided to cook my pudding in a water bath which allowed for a creamy and delicious dessert! Thanks Pat! I will be making this often!
