Great Great Great Grandma's Rice Pudding

Colleen Sowa


My Great Grandma Charlotte Kennedy's recipe, given to her daughter Mabel Kennedy Sullivan, and given to me Colleen Sullivan Sowa. Originally this was baked in a wood stove, it has been adapted to gas and electric stoves over the years. I love the measurement of "the size of an egg" for the butter!

This very old recipe is also very good! Baked puddings were how most puddings were done years ago, and they ate it as a meal, side dish and for dessert...
