This was a favorite dessert of mine, I’ve still never found a rice pudding recipe to match up to this one. I love it best served warm with a little milk.
This recipe was copied, rewritten, and typed from the original printing because the original was getting a little….umm destroyed looking. And now that original is safe and sound somewhere??? But I’m so glad I and a couple of my sisters copied this one down. Hope ya all like it.
½ C Long grain white rice OR 1 ½ cooked rice
1/3 C sugar
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp grated orange peel
2 C milk
2 eggs, slightly beaten
½ C seedless raisins (suggested)
Steam or boil rice according to directions. Combine rice with all other ingredients and pour into a well greased 1 ½ quart casserole dish. Bake @ 325° for about 45 minutes, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm or cold with milk or cream.
