My sisters and I always loved the recipe for rice pudding our grandma made. After she passed away, I took it upon myself to try and find the secret to her rice pudding. It took quite a bit of experimentation, but I finally got it right! And I'm glad to share this easy recipe here. —Margaret DeChant, Newberry, Michigan

"The basic recipe was easy and quick. Based on the previous comments, I modified the recipe when preparing, reducing the leftover cooked rice to 1 cup [packed] and the sugar to 1/4 cup. Added a few more raisins [personal preference!], and instead of nutmeg used generous sprinkles of cinnamon [about 2t] and allspice [about 1/2t]. That worked very well for us! I may try using maple syrup instead of sugar next time. The rice volume used may depend on the dryness of the rice; ours was fairly dry. leftover from a few days. I think the sugar and spices can be adjusted by each cook depending on personal preferences."

"Very yummy and easy recipe although way too sweet for me. I would make this again but next time only put 1/4 cup of sugar in the mix."

"This was a great way to use up leftover rice! I’ve never made baked rice pudding before and it was tasty. It had a porridge consistency. Since I’m not a big fan of nutmeg, I only used a quarter tsp instead, and then added cinnamon because I like that better. I will definitely be using this recipe again!"
