I'm passing this along for all the seniors and singles. I haven't tried it myself, but plan to soon as it sounds easy and tasty.
- 3⁄4 cup water
- 1⁄4 cup long-grain rice
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 1 large egg
- 4 teaspoons sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons raisins
- Bring water to a boil and add rice.
- Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
- Whisk milk and egg together, then whisk in sugar and vanilla.
- Stir into the hot cooked rice and then stir in raisins.
- Pour rice mixture into a small greased casserole dish and bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes.
- Serve warm with pouring cream.
Great. Quick. I did add additional sugar after it was baked, just a personal preference. I will be making it again. A great comfort food on a cold, windy day.
As the only rice pudding lover in my family I have suffered for years without making one of my favorite comfort foods. I made the rice in the microwave, left out the raisins, and added some cinnamon and nutmeg, and was in comfort food heaven! Thanks Lennie, I don't know why I didn't think of this myself, and I'm so glad you did!
I used Splenda and 2% milk also. Because I read the reviews, I also added cinnamon 3 minutes before ending of baking. I personally don't think the matter with this is what kind of milk you use, but how much. I would recommend adding more milk because it turned out dry, which made it bland. I added some fruit at the top which made it better. It was reasonably good, but could be a lot better. Lower calorie than a lot of other recipes though =)
