Baked Rice Pudding

Baked Rice Pudding

Today I recommend a baked rice pudding recipe which is unexpectedly good and interesting, very much like a cake. The savoury rice and tender crust make it so special, milk rice of some sort, you could say, but different. 


1 cup
0.5 tsp
700 ml
3 pieces
250 g
Vanilla Extract
1 tbsp
50 g
7 tbsp
50 g

Step by step

Step 1

The first and the most important step is cooking the rice in advance - 2-3 hours before actually making the pudding.

You can cook it like I do, following the rice with butter recipe, in a deep pan and with milk instead of water.

- melt 25g butter in a pan, add 1 cup of well washed and well drained rice, stir;

- Pour over 600ml milk, 50g sugar and 0.5 tsp salt, mix well and cook over high heat until it comes to a boil;

Step 3

- As it comes to the boil, turn heat down and cook, without mixing at all, for about 15 minutes.

Cooking time may vary depending on the type of rice.

Step 4

When you see that the rice has soaked up almost all the milk, cover the pan with a lid and turn off the heat.

Now wait patiently and let puff for 30 minutes, without stirring and without the heat on.

Step 5

After 30 minutes, mix and notice that the rice is well cooked, every single grain, without being mushy, though.

You can cook the rice any way you prefer. What matters is that, at the end, every single grain of rice is properly cooked (rice is not mushy) and cooled.

Sprinkle the top with 2 more tbsp breadcrumbs, this will make a delicious crust and won't let the pudding dry off.
