Now I dont particularly like rice pudding, but my daughter and husband Philip would beg Nana to make her rice pudding whenever she would come to our house to stay. So I had Nana teach me in order to keep my family happy. Havent had a friend or family member since who didnt gobble it up when i made it. Nana was amazing, as was all her foods and desserts. I sure do miss her.

How to Make Nana's Rice Pudding

Step-by-Step

  • 1Heat rice and water to a boil in a saucpan, stirring once or twice. Then put heat on low and cover and simmer rice for about 14 minutes. Do NOT lift cover during this time. All water should be absorbed when the time is up
  • 2Beat eggs in a casserole dish. (1 1/2 quart ungreased dish) Beat in sugar. Now stir in raisins, milk, vanilla, salt and hot rice.
  • 3Sprinkle the top with cinnamon. (I use a healthy amount since my family loves cinnamon)
  • 4Bake in preheated 325 degree oven for about 45 minutes. Do NOT cover. Be sure to stir every 15 minutes. (Do not over bake the rice or it will curdle)
  • 5The top of the pudding will be wet and not set. Stir pudding well and allow to stand for 15 minutes. This is when the liquid will be absorbed and make the pudding creamy.
  • 6You may serve this warm or cold (my family prefers it cold, it takes about 3 hours to chill up nice when put in frig covered) When serving sprinkle with a bit more cinnamon and top with whipped cream.
