This moist custard-like rice pudding is flavored with grated lemon zest, vanilla, and a bit of nutmeg.


  • 1/2 cup plain cooked rice
  • 3 eggs (beaten)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 3 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 pinch of ground nutmeg (freshly ground is preferable)

Steps to Make It

  1. In a large mixing bowl, mix all ingredients except nutmeg.

  2. Pour mixture into a lightly buttered shallow baking dish and sprinkle with nutmeg.

  3. Place baking dish in a pan of hot water in the oven and bake at 300° for about 1 1/2 hours, or until set.

  4. A clean knife inserted into the center should come out with nothing clinging to it.

  5. Serve warm or chilled with whipped cream or whipped topping, if desired.
