Baked Rice Pudding Recipe
This baked version is a thicker rice pudding and therefore a little chewier. It is lightly sweet and can be served with a drizzle of cream, if desired. This is how my mom’s rice pudding came out. I’m not sure if she made it this way intentionally or it was the method she used. Sometimes we ate her rice pudding with a fork!
- 2/3 cup uncooked regular rice
- 1 1/3 cups water
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 2 cups milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- ground nutmeg
- cream (optional)
Creamy Rice Pudding Recipe
Source: Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk)This recipe was the easiest to make and produced the sweetest and most creamy rice pudding. It ranked second place for me and third for my husband. The original recipe calls for 1 1/2-teaspoon of salt but I found that way too much and think 1/2-teaspoon would be better.
- 1/2 c. uncooked rice
- 3 c. boiling water
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 1/3 c. (15 oz. can) Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
- 1/2 c. seedless raisins, if desired
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
Put rice, water and salt into heavy 2 quart saucepan. Cover and cook over medium heat until water boils. Reduce heat and simmer until rice is tender, about 15 minutes.
Remove from heat. Stir in Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk and raisins.
Beat eggs just until blended. Add gradually, while stirring briskly, to rice-milk mixture.
Return to low heat and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture coats a metal spoon.
Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla extract and nutmeg.
Serve hot or chilled.

To speed the cooking time, I cook the rice in my Instant Pot then finish by adding it to your stove top Creamy Rice Pudding version. I cook 1 cup of rinsed basmati rice with 2 c whole milk, 1 1 1/4 c water, 1/4 tsp sea salt for 20 minutes in the Instant Pot on Porridge setting, allowing it to naturally release for 10 minutes. While it cooks, I prepare the milk mixture according to recipe directions and add the hot rice immediately upon opening the Instant Pot. I beat the eggs, temper with some of the milk mixture then add to milk rice mixture in the saucepan stirring constantly until mixture thickens. Add 2 tsp lemon extract and 1 1/2 tsp vanilla, adding more according to your preference. This is old fashioned rice pudding with a modern twist, using the IP which makes excellent cooked rice. Thanks for you delicious recipe!
I love that you shared your Instant pot directions! I know they have become very popular and this may be of interest to others posting here.
Thank you for taking the time to comment 🙂
Also medium or short grain rice makes the creamiest rice pudding! Much better texture than long grain rice!
This post is great! I LOVE LOVE LOVE rice pudding! The first recipe is very close to mine, except you should always stir in vanilla extract at the end, when you take it off the heat. This is because vanilla extract is mostly alcohol & it will evaporate when boiled. Also, fat free half & half is made of oil & water, which kinda grosses me out, so I think the real thing is healthier, even tho it has more calories. However, when I want to lighten up my rice pudding, I use 1% milk or unsweetened vanilla almond milk, along with a little half & half, and I use Splenda, with just a little bit of real sugar (usually turbinado). Even the most hardcore artificial sweetener haters in my family have NEVER been able to detect the Splenda in the recipe! I also use both almond & vanilla extracts, which gives it such an amazing flavor! And I make my own whipped cream to top it with since it's so easy to make homemade whipped cream. Sorry for the long comment! As u can tell, I'm very passionate about my rice pudding! LOL. I literally have a batch in the fridge at all times!
Santina baker, I use regular long grain rice. Thanks for stopping by!

Hi there! I'm planning to use your recipe, but I was also wondering…what type of rice do your recommend? Thanks so much!
Santina baker says
I would just like to know, what is the best rice to use for the pudding?
Wow! Lorraine! This looks de…li..ci..ous.. 🙂
I love rice pudding but I haven't made it for quite a long time. We are having rainy, Fall-type weather here today so I'm beginning to feel the urge to stay inside and cook. Plans are already made for food in progress but I'm going to add rice pudding to the plan soon. I will try your favorite first and enjoy it, I know.

I havent had Rice Pudding in a long time, your Recipes sound delicious!
Kathy Olson says
I'm definitely trying the first one. Thank you and I love your photography – beautiful!
Lynn@Happier Than a Pig in Mud says
I'd probably like the first one best but wouldn't turn down a bowl of any of them:@)

This looks absolutely delicious, Lorraine. My mom always made rice pudding and she put raisins in hers as well. She called it "flavored rice" 🙂 Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Please be aware that my email has been hacked and you may have gotten some spam from me…I apologize if you did…I think the problem is fixed now!
I love rice pudding and so do two of our children , my mother made the best rice pudding! I have never tried evaporated milk with my recipe but will certainly give it a try as I love evaporated milk too! These recipes look wonderful, thanks for sharing
Just a little something from Judy says
We both really like rice pudding, and have had it made in different ways. However we eat it, we like it served with whipped cream, and for sure we never had a dish of it, that looked as good as yours!
Thank you so much for sharing this. I plan to make this next year with our goat's milk. Right now they are drying up for the season, so I don't think I'll get 7 cups. If I do, I'll be trying it this year.
My MIL made the best rice pudding and I got her recipe years ago , but have never made it. That needs to change. ha! I don't think I had ever tasted it before having hers…delish!!
Rice pudding was hands down my mother's favorite. She had a wonderful recipe though I have no idea where it is… : ( I LOVE it too. But I have never made it. It will always make me think of mom. Hope your having a good week!

I haven't had rice pudding in years. My Mom made it occasionally when I was growing up. Hers was stovetop….and with raisins. Yours looks delicious. Brought back a sweet memory.
