Baked Rice Pudding

This is my Grandmother's recipe.  We called her "Marga" because my sister couldn't say Grandma.  I want to dedicate this post to her.  She was not only a beautiful and gentle woman, but a wonderful baker and lover of sweets.

This recipe has barely any sugar, so it's not going to harm all of your New Year 'healthy eating' resolutions.  I also know that many of you are currently experiencing a heavy snowfall.  So sit by your fire, curl up, and enjoy this traditional Baked Rice Pudding.  Serve with a good lashing of pouring custard.

Ingredients
1/2 cup cooked jasmine rice
3 eggs
2 generous tbsp sugar
700mL milk, skim or full cream
1 generous tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tbsp butter
sprinkle of nutmeg

Method
Heat oven to 180 degrees (fan-forced) and get out a square baking dish or flan dish.  Beat eggs in a large bowl and add in sugar; beat again to combine.  Pour in milk and vanilla extract; stir together.  Add in rice; stir.  Pour into dish and place small knobs of butter on top of the mixture.  Sprinkle with some nutmeg.  Place in oven for about 1 hour, or until golden and brown.  Serve hot or cold with custard.
Thank you for making my childhood sweet, Marga.

  21. I must admit, I've never actually baked rice pudding... Mine are usually just stove-top affairs. I like the idea of a crispy top though, that sounds delicious!

  30. I've never seen rice pudding made this way. It seems much easier than the stove version. Thanks for sharing your grandma's recipe.

    Your grandma was a gorgeous lady.

  31. What a beautiful post. Your dedication to your grandmother is heartwarming and so is her dish. It actually reminds me of a typical Dutch dessert I used to eat. It's called "rijstevlaai". It's basically your dessert as a filling for a pie. The Dutch use a yeasted sweet dough as a crust, but I guess you could use any crust you like. It's served with whipped cream on top :o)
