  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.
