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.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

SO GOOD! This turned out exactly as described. Creamy on the top and dense on the bottom meaning custard on the top and rice pudding on the bottom! I tried to capture that in my photo. This was really tasty. Too much water was used for cooking the rice so I poured it through a colander after 25 minutes and the rice tasted done. I did use vanilla bean paste in place of the vanilla extract, and, because I had a large serving of vanilla pudding mix, I increased the recipe by half changing the servings to read 9. I got almost all of it into my 8 inch square baking dish. I left out about 1/4 cup so I wouldn't spill it putting it in the oven. When served, I sprinkled with cinnamon. Hubby says, "where's the raisins?" I told him next time. There will be a next time. Thank you KOKO48 for sharing! Read More

So delicious! I will make this again everyone loved it! The instructions are easy and straightforward.Followed to the tee the recipe was 5 stars. Consistency was perfect dense almost like a bread pudding custard. Second time I made this I added rum-soaked raisins and wow! 6 stars! I have also substituted a package of serve and cook tapioca pudding for the vanilla pudding because that's all I had on hand. I think it will be a permanent change for me! Highly recommend giving this recipe a try!! Read More

So I made 1 adjustment on accident.... I went to add the pudding mix and realized I only had chocolate I rolled with it. My only complaint doesn't have anything to do with my added chocolate flavor it has a very distinctive pudding mix texture mixed in which is not something I really want in a rice pudding. However my kids love pudding mixes so this is just fine with them. Read More
