This is a simple recipe for baked Rice Pudding from a 1959 cookbook.
1/2 cup rice
1 quart milk (that's just under 1 litre)
1/2 teaspoon sugar (white or brown)
1/2 teaspoon salt
Wash rice, add remaining ingredients and pour into greased baking dish. Bake in 275F (that's 135C) oven 3 hours. Stir frequently during the first hour. Serves 6.
Variations: Add 1/2 cup raisins or 2 eggs during last hour. I also vary with lemon or orange rind, lavender or rose petals infused in the milk, or hisbiscus tea infused in the milk (strain after infusing before making as above).
I love these simple nostalgic recipes. We can do so many things from the basic.
Oh by the way the 1959 Cookery Book is Culinary Arts Institute Encyclopedic Cookbook.
