No One Will Ever Get Bored Of Grandma’s Old Fashioned Custard Style Rice Pudding!

Rice pudding.  A wonderful creation.  I do not have any idea who possibly came up with the idea of throwing sugar and milk into rice, but I am thankful they did, because I never would have. I am the worst at planning and preparing recipes that do not seem traditional, at best.  But with time, I have learned that it does not need to be so.  Unconventional recipes can sometimes turn out to be the very best.

That’s what my grandma used to say anyway. I remember years and years ago, when I was a little girl, my grandma was always in the kitchen.  She never took a cooking class in her life, but that woman cooked like a top notch chef.

She always had something utterly delicious on the table, and every single time you would step into her house, there was some sort of sweets ready for you to devour. I am not sure if it was always so, or if she just made sure to have stuff for when we came over.  Anyhow, my grandma would very often make this custard rice pudding and it would knock my socks off!

This is the ultimate comfort food and your family will be very grateful if you make this for them!

Thank you for sharing your family recipe. My Momma made the best rice pudding. She always baked her rice pudding and bread pudding in her big yellow mixing bowl. I now have her bowl and treasure it as it makes me think of her when I bake my puddings. Hope all of you ladies have a wonderful Mothers Day.

Hi Patty, hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day as well. Would you be open to sharing your Momma’s bread pudding recipe? Thank you in advance. I can’t find a recipe I like. The old fashioned ones are always the best! I hope I’m not offending by asking, that was never the intention. If you wouldn’t mind sharing, please email me at [email protected]. Whatever your choice will be, thank you for reading my comment.

I have a very good simple bread pudding recipe made in the microwave if you can believe it the lemon juice is the secret.Here’s the recipe
1/4 cup melted butter in a 1qt casserole dish (45 sec-1 min on full power) 4 slices cubed bread ,2/3cup sugar 1tsp lemon peel grated,2 tbsp. lemon juice,1/3 cup raisins. Add all to melted butter.Mix 1 cup milk and 3eggs, pour over bread mixture sprinkle with cinnamon then place into a baking dish with 1 cup of warm water in it.Cook uncovered on full power for 10 to 12 min may seem a bit unbaked but as it cools a bit it thickens up of course you have to top with cream or icecream. enjoy, would like to hear your comments

Patty,
My mom used to make all her casserole type things in her big yellow bowl too! Squash casserole, green bean casserole…..Oh and potato salad was always in that bowl too! Love those memories and the cool thing about it is, that every time I make something in that bowl, it reminds me of when I was a kid. Mom is still with me, but I’m the one making the food now!! Enjoy your memories honey! 🙂

Highlight it, right click on anything blue and check print from the list that pops up. You can copy & paste to your notebook too.

Hi There – Would you mind sharing more details on this tip? It sounds like something I’d love to try. What brand “custard” pudding? Do you add from the box in powder form or do you make first and add the actual prepared pudding? Thank you in advance!!

I make my custard in my pressure. Takes 3 minutes. 3 minutes!! You heard me right. It is delicious hot or cold if you can wait that long to eat it. It’s from the old Presto pressure cooker cookbook. Also has a bread pudding recipe..15 min.

I don’t have an oven. You think Iit would work in a crackpot. Think ill try canned miĺk . Give me some ideas please.

My grandmother and mother all maid this pudding you must have gotten it from a old cook book as all your recipes are already in use for years . Don’t have to be a chef to cook .Easy thing to do.
