Full Answer

To make old-fashioned rice pudding, beat together 2 eggs and 4 cups of milk until the ingredients are well-combined, then add 1/2 cup of uncooked white rice, 1/2 cup of white sugar, 1 tablespoon of butter and 1/2 cup of raisins if desired. Season the mixture with 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 1/8 teaspoon of ground nutmeg, and pour everything into a greased baking dish. Bake the pudding at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for one hour, stirring it often, and then for another 90 minutes undisturbed.
