Cooking Method

The baking method is a whole lot simpler than the stove-top method. So, if this is your first time trying the creamy dessert, you’re in luck. Simply combine your ingredients and let the oven do the rest for you! We suggest you let the rice cool a bit before adding it in or use leftover rice you have in your fridge.

If you’re thinking about skipping the water bath because it sounds complicated, don’t! It’s actually a lot simpler than it sounds. Just place your oven safe baking dish inside of a larger pan that contains water. The water from the outside pan helps the rice pudding to have a creamy texture and cook evenly. If you don’t have two pans, find a large cheap aluminum foil cooking pan from the local grocery store.

Serve this hot or cold and top with homemade whipped cream. While you wait for your rice pudding in the oven, simply whip together cream, sugar and vanilla and in minutes you have a delicious and homemade topping!
