The Best Rice Pudding !

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by TGirl

Left over rice never had it so good ! This creamy pudding is the perfect way to use up the extra white rice from Chinese take-out or from tonight's supper, and delicious enough to make you cook some up fresh, just so you can have this for dessert! Tastes great warm or cold--Enjoy!!

TGirl,What A Great recipe,I put the dry ingredients in a bowl as stated in your recipe, (including the cornstarch),Beat the wet ingredients in another bowl,then added them together an beat with whisk again,added rice and whisked all together.The only thing I did different was add 1/2 tsp.of cinnamon along with your nutmeg.The Taste? OMG!!!!! Well I like my rice pudding cold,usually,but the smell of it baking was killing me,so I had some right out of the oven,(As did my husband) and it was so good,so hot and creamy and deliscious,I have changed my mind about eating it cold.And My Husband ate two helpings HE loved it too.Thank You for this wonderful treat.Darlene

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large bowl, combine sugar, salt, cornstarch and nutmeg.
  2. Add milk, egg yolks, and vanilla, using wire whisk to beat until smooth.
  3. Add cooked rice, and pour into a 1 and 1/2 quart baking dish--you can also use a 9 x 9 square baking dish, but you'll need to decrease the cooking time by at least 15 minutes, if not more, so check carefully after the first hour.
  4. Place baking dish into larger pan, and pour hot water into outer pan to create a 1 inch deep water bath.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees, stirring occasionally, for 1 1/2 hours, or until pudding is creamy and milk is absorbed.
