  • 4 tablespoons of pudding rice
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar
  • Nutmeg (to taste)
  • 1 quart (950ml) of milk


  1. Take 4 tablespoons of rice and wash the rice by putting it into a sieve or strainer and let clean cold water run over it
  2. Put the washed rice in a bowl and add 4 tablespoons of granulated sugar
  3. Pour the milk over the rice
  4. Turn the mixture into a baking dish
  5. Grate some nutmeg over the rice mixture and place the dish in a moderate oven (gas 3-4, Electric 325 F 170 C)
  6. Cook for around 2 hours. As it starts to brown on the top stir, do this twice.
  7. When the rice is soft, it is done.

Rice pudding is better served quite cold.

If you like raisins measure out 2 tablespoons (make sure they are seedless) and soak them in boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain off the water and stir them into the pudding before it goes into the oven.
