This is another classic comfort food for me, as it was always a major treat when it was made by my Mother, Grandmother, or my Aunt. Each one made it slightly different, one adding more cinnamon, and another preferring more raisins than the others. But the end result was always delicious warm or chilled.

Amount Measure Ingredients
5 cups white rice, steamed and completely cooled
4 cups milk
5   eggs
3/4 cup raisins
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
    Pinch ground nutmeg
    Pinch ground cloves
    Pinch salt

To prepare:

Whisk the milk and eggs together in a large bowl until blended smoothly. Next, add in the sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and clove, Fold this mixture into the cooled rice and raisins and pour into a 9×9 glass baking dish. Place in larger baking dish and add about 1″ water. Bake pudding at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool, serve warm with a scoop of ice cream or chilled with a sprinkling of nutmeg.
