I remember as a bratty teenager, my Dad trying to get this pudding just perfect to his taste. He made LOTS of rice pudding that day, and I remember how excited he was when he finally got it the way he liked it. To this day, I feel guilty for not trying to help him perfect it. What I wouldn't give to go back to that day and spend some one on one time with him cooking in the kitchen. My dad is one awesome cook. From his ham flied lice to his rice pudding! :o) So here's his recipe and i'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as I did. Reminds me of home.
Daddy's Rice Pudding
3 1/2 cups milk
1/2 c. rice
1/2 c. sugar, and a little more if you like it sweeter. This isn't too sweet.
Combine these 3 ingredients in a 13x9 pan and cover and bake for 1 hour on 350 degrees. When it's done stir in
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
and however many raisins desired. (I didn't have any raisins, so I didn't add any.)
Bake for 20-30 minutes testing to see the tenderness of the rice.
So glad I have this recipe in my collection. I don't think my Dad knows this, but I do and it's in his writing so it means even more! :o) Enjoy!!!
