The Ultimate Rice Custard Recipe

5 from 1 reviews

This is a classic old-time rice custard recipe with a silky custard sitting atop sweet rice and raisins. A little molasses adds lovely flavour.




  1. Preheat oven to 350 F
  2. Spread cooked rice in the bottom of a 6-cup baking dish and sprinkle over the raisins (breaking up any clumps).
  3. Whisk together the milk, eggs, sugar, molasses, vanilla and nutmeg
  4. Gently pour over the rice.
  5. Bake, uncovered, 45-55 minutes, until the centre is set and a knife comes out clean when inserted in the centre. 
  6. Serve warm or cold


I use a 6-cup baking dish for this recipe (1 1/2 quart)
