Baked Custard Rice Pudding

Our dietitians' favourite

This recipe is taken from the 2014 Milk Calendar. "This was always a favourite in our home. My mum found this to be an easy pudding to prepare, especially as we had our own eggs and milk. It was a good way to fill up tummies in a large family."
-Recipe from Tony Forrester, dairy farmer from New Glasgow, Prince-Edward-Island

Preheat oven to 325 °F (160 °C).

In a bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar and salt until blended. Whisk in milk and vanilla extract. Stir in rice and raisins. Spread in an 11 x 7-inch (28 x 18 cm) cooking dish.

Bake for 25 min. Stir pudding, then sprinkle with cinnamon to taste. Bake for 25 to 35 min longer or until a knife inserted half-way between centre and edge comes out clean. Let cool slightly and serve warm or refrigerate and serve chilled.


You’ll need about 1/2 cup (125 mL) uncooked rice to get 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) cooked. Be sure to use rice within 2 days of cooking for optimal food safety.
