I make a similar baked rice pudding that my mother made. When I cook the rice, instead of two cups of water per cup of rice, I use three cups of water and cook it until the water is absorbed. Make the rice moister. I never used nutmeg, but instead added some cinnamon to taste (not a lot) into the mixture. Then when the rice mixture is poured into the baking dish, cover the top with the ground cinnamon and bake it. You get sort of a cinnamon crust on the top, and when you take it out of the oven, spread a light coating of butter to the top to give it a sheen and a rich taste. Normally don't add raisins, but when I'm in the mood I will.
Made this yesterday and worried about it, due to the 1 bad review BUT it came out GREAT ! The only thing I can think of for it not turning out, would be that the rice wasn't cooked right.
My kids and I loved this rice pudding, with its custard-like layer on the top. We added a 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp cinnamon, just our taste. We enjoyed warm or cold, with milk. So easy and a great way to use up leftover rice.
I give it one star to rate it based on a lack of taste and very dry. No stars doesn't reduce the tatal rating. If you like slightly sweetened rice save the rest of the ingredients and all the wasted power to bake it. Simply put some hot rice in a bowl add sugar and it will taste better than this mess. We used to cook rice and add some butter, a little sugar and cinnamon with milk as a quick sweet shack that tasted better than this did. It needs more sugar. Plus some vanilla extract and cinnamon would make it rock after leaving out the nutmeg. As is there were a lot of deprived people out there based on the number of reviews that liked it. My grandma would never give us kids anything as plain tasting or dry as this waste of time and money and call it pudding. I am able to save it by adding a little more sugar with cinnamon after I put it in a bowl. Then mix in additional milk and nuke it. That at least gives it some taste other than slightly sweet rice.
