Baked rice pudding can be made in a variety of ways, depending on the recipe used. Most recipes include rice, sugar, milk and raisins. Eggs and flavorings are where recipes differ when it comes to ingredients. The Allrecipes.com version uses uncooked white rice, and is flavored with nutmeg and vanilla extract. This recipe also includes water as an additional liquid. The About.com recipe is the easiest one with just six ingredients and uses butter to grease the baking dish.
The recipe at Taste of Home uses cooked rice that is placed in a casserole dish along with raisins. The remaining ingredients are poured on top of the rice. Additional milk can be poured over each serving, if desired. The recipe for baked brown-rice pudding combines raw brown rice with brown sugar for a richer flavor. Instead of regular milk, this recipe uses evaporated milk and heavy cream as its liquid base. Cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla round out the flavors. Brown-rice pudding also has a topping made of unsalted butter, sugar and walnuts.
