An Old-Fashioned Treat
There are times in today’s fast-paced world when the simpler pleasures of the “good old days” seem to be the only thing to keep us going. That’s totally the case with me and baked rice pudding. Sure, I could go out to a diner and get a scoop, or even go to the store and buy the premade stuff, but what’s the fun in that?

For one, this baked rice pudding possibly one of the easiest things ever to make. Literally, throw all your ingredients in the Deep Covered Baker, put it in the oven, and forget about it for a while. For two, the aromas that are going to envelop your home are INCREDIBLE. Third, this is one of those super inexpensive treats that you just know your great grandma was probably cranking out during the Great Depression. Finally… it tastes amazing.
The recipe below is for half the amount that is pictured. If you want to double the recipe, make sure that you adjust not only the ingredients but also the bake time to allow for proper “puddingfication.” Yes, I made up a word. But, yeah, it’ll take longer to set up correctly by doing a double batch
Baked Rice Pudding
- 1/2 cup Rice
- 2 cups Milk
- 1 cup Water
- 1/2 Tbsp butter
- 1/2 tsp Watkins Ground Cinnaon
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1 tsp Watkins Baking Vanilla
- 1/3 cup Raisins optional
- 1/2 cup sugar
- Mix all ingredients except raisins and pour into a heavily buttered Deep Covered Baker or casserole dish.
- Bake at 300F for one hour.
- Reduce heat to 250F for one more hour.
- Stir in the raisins and bake another 1/2 hour.
- Rice pudding will be done when a cake tester comes out almost clean. When the rice pudding is done baking, allow to cool for at least 30 minutes before serving.
Why In the Deep Covered Baker?
Yes, my love affair with the Pampered Chef Deep Covered Baker really knows no bounds. One of these days, I’m sure I’ll get around to writing a post or two about it, but yeah. I love it. The Deep Covered Baker is made of stoneware, so it has a very even heat retention that bakes everything perfectly. Also, when the lid is on and it’s baking, the Deep Covered Baker acts as a mini oven… sure, the oven around it is doing its thing, but inside, the Deep Covered Baker is making magic.
