Baked Rice Pudding

I usually buy rice pudding at the grocery store, Kozy Shack, which is really delicious .. I decided to make this instead of buying it today!

My mother-in-law sent me this recipe to me in 2013 ( it was a bit cryptic but I have figured it out!) & I have never made it! I had printed out the email but it got tucked away in my huge recipe binder! I discovered it today and decided to give it a try. is absolutely delish! Leave out the raisins if you don’t like them, t will be just as good! There a sauce for it which called for brandy but I put in rum.. we all know Murray loves rum! Then topped with a dollar of whipped cream and some slivered almonds.. it is fantastic! I may never buy Kozy Shack again!

It calls for cooked rice so I am using instant rice which I am sure is going to great in this recipe and I have a box of it in the pantry.. I used it for the Cheese & Rice Kugel

Serve warm or cold… pour the sauce on.. I used enough that it pooled a bit amongst the rice pudding..add a dollop of whipped cream & some almonds… or of course just eat it as it is!!! So Good!

Here is the recipe..


2 eggs

1 1/2 cups milk

1/2 cup brown sugar

pinch of salt

1 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 cups cooked rice

1/2 cup raisins ( optional )

Sauce Ingredients

1 tbsp butter

1 tbsp brown sugar

1 oz rum or brandy

3/4 cup cream


Grease a 8 x 8 square baking dish

  1. Whisk the eggs & add the milk, brown sugar, salt & vanilla, mix well
  2. Add the rice & raisins, mix
  3. Pour into the prepared baking dish & bake for 40-50 minutes
  4. Remove from the oven & set aside
  5. Make the sauce…in a small saucepan.. over medium/low heat…add the butter & brown sugar…stir in until the butter melts…add the will bubble up.. mix, then slowly add the cream stirring so that it does not stick to the bottom of the pan…Bring to a simmer but be careful not to burn it Remove from the heat & set aside

Keep the rice pudding & the sauce in the fridge.


Ready for the oven

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
