Old-Fashioned Rice Custard Recipe

Publisher Photo
I don't remember where or how I found this dessert. When I took it to a family reunion many years ago, however, a great-uncle was sure I'd used my great-grandmother's recipe! Church suppers are among the places I've carried my rice custard. At home, I like to have it warm for dinner. Then, the next morning, I'll frequently enjoy the leftovers cold for my breakfast. This dish is one I've been making for nearly as long as I've been married—and that's 42 years. My husband and I were true childhood sweethearts (I have known him since I was 3-1/2!). We have a daughter and two grandchildren. They live 15 minutes away, and they're the center of our life.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 3, 2012

"I made this tonight and it turned out wonderfully. I used jasmine rice and added a half teaspoon of cinnamon, beaten in with the milk and eggs, and used half as much nutmeg.I love this recipe and will definitely make it again."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 8, 2012

"I loved the nutmeg in this dessert. I wasn't completely happy with the texture, but it might have been an issue with the type of rice I used or the stone bakeware. I'm definitely going to try it again. My recipe analyzer (using 2% milk) was 337 calories, 6 servings. I used Goya Jasmine Rice."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 2, 2012

"Absolutely fantastic! Easy, creamy, and oh so yummy! I have a LARGE family so I doubled the recipe but the cooking time was not affected. I also added a dash of nutmeg and cinnamon to the rice while cooking on stove top and added maple flavoring to the final mix before putting in the oven. If you love custard, you are going to love this dish!"

"This custard was great! Reminded me of my Grandmothers. I think next time I will use cinnamon. I wasn't too crazy about the nutmeg."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 14, 2010

"It is delicious, even being made with fat free milk. I was surprised at the number of calories that are listed in the nutrition info. I did some figuring by adding up all ingredients and came up with 250 per serving , using 6 servings for the math. This was with fat -free milk."
