Rice Pudding Custard

Hello wonderful people!  Here’s hoping that your weekend is shaping up beautifully thus far.

So, let’s hop right into it, shall we?  Let’s talk about rice, baby.  😀  I could eat rice every single day.  No lie.  I love it.  But surprise, surprise, one of my favorite ways to have it is in dessert form.  Shocking, right?  🙂

I love, love, LOVE rice pudding.  Personally I think it even makes a wonderful addition to holiday side dishes.  Plus, it’s super easy.

Another love of mine happens to be all things pudding and custard-like.  They just bring a smile to your face, don’t they?  So imagine my surprise when the two world collided!


I was just minding my own business when I happened to stumble across this recipe for rice pudding custard.  At first I thought, “Hmm, I wonder if it’s any good?”  Then I made it.  Then answer?  An overwhelming YES!

Now, don’t be afraid of this recipe.  I know the idea of rice swimming around in a sea of custard might sound a little weird, but it’s absolutely lovely.  It’s sweet, but not heavy.  It’s perfect for the spring weather!  And I mean, come on.  It has a lot of eggs.  Eggs are synonymous with Easter.  Easter is coming up.  This recipe is perfect, right?  😉  I mean, we have no choice but to make it again and again…

And again and again…


The taste of this rice pudding custard is reminiscent to a bread pudding.  Actually, I think it pretty much is a bread pudding with the bread swapped out for the rice.  But we’ll let the food bosses argue that one out for a while, right?  We’ll just sit on the sidelines enjoying our custard.
