baked rice pudding

One of my husband's favorite desserts in the world is rice pudding. I added the "dash" of nutmeg and the raisins because of hubby, but, if they're not your thing, that's fine too. It's just as wonderful without them. Best part of this pudding is it takes just a couple of minutes to mix in a bowl. The hard part is waiting the two hours for it to come out of the oven, while you're taking in the delicious aroma floating throughout your house. Then I served it in my pink glass cups and it took this simple dessert over the top in presentation.
