Swedish Rice Pudding


A favorite with Swedes in our Swedish organization - creamy on top and dense on the bottom. Serve with whipping cream and/or sweetened berries, if desired.

  • 2 cups water

  • ½ cup white rice

  • 2 ⅔ cups whole milk

  • 3 eggs, slightly beaten

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 1 (4-serving size) package cook-and-serve vanilla pudding mix

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ teaspoon salt


  1. Bring water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.

  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch square baking dish.

  3. Stir milk into rice until evenly combined. Mix eggs, sugar, pudding mix, butter, vanilla extract, and salt into rice mixture; transfer to the prepared baking dish.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted in the pudding comes out clean, about 1 hour.

Cook's Note:

Almond extract can be substituted for the vanilla extract.

For a creamier pudding, cook in a water bath. Set pudding dish into a baking pan. Add hot water to the pan until it comes halfway up the sides of the baking dish. Set in oven and cook as directed.
