Baked rice pudding

Prep time less than 30 mins
Cook time less than 30 mins

  1. Wash the rice, put it into a pie-dish with the sugar, pour in the milk, and stir these ingredients well together.

  2. Then add the butter cut up into very small pieces, or, instead of this, the above proportion of finely-minced suet.

  3. Grate a little nutmeg over the top, and bake the pudding in a moderate oven, from 1½ to 2 hours. As the rice is not previously cooked, care must be taken that the pudding is very slowly baked, to give plenty of time for the rice to swell, and for it to be very thoroughly done.


  • 1 teacup rice
  • 2 tbsp moist sugar
  • 1.13L/2 pints milk
  • 15g/½oz butter
  • 2 tbsp chopped suet
