For a firmer pudding, use 1/2 cup of rice. For a richer pudding, stir in 1 or 2 well-beate4n eggs 30 minutes before the pudding is done.


  • 4 cups milk
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup uncooked rice (not quick-cooking)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla or a dash of nutmeg or the grated rind of 1/2 lemon


Put the above ingredients in a casserole. Bake, uncovered, 3 hours at 300 degrees. During the first hour, stir three times with a fork so that the rice will not seetle. After the first hour, stir in 1/2 cup raisins, dates or figs cut in small pieces.
