Transcript:Rice Pudding Recipe

Hi, I'm Rachel Edelman for About.com Food. Today I'm going to show you how to make an old-fashioned rice pudding recipe baked with a meringue topping.

Rice Pudding Ingredients

For this recipe you will need:
  • 1 cup long grain rice, cooked with 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • raisins or dried fruit, if desired

Heat the Rice and Milk

Pour the milk into a saucepan in a medium-high heat. Add the cooked rice to the milk. Heat them both until it's almost boiling.

Separate the Eggs

Next, crack the eggs and release the egg whites into one bowl, and the yolks into another larger bowl. Pour 1/2 cup of granulated sugar and the vanilla in with the egg yolks. Whisk these together.

Combine Rice Pudding Ingredients

Now slowly add some of the rice and milk into the egg yolk mixture. Stir along the way. Then, pour it all back into the saucepan and cook it so it's thickened a bit.

Prepare the Meringue

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Meanwhile, make meringue by beating the egg whites. I'm using a stand mixer with a whisk attachment. Start with a slow seed and mix until you see foamy bubbles. Then, gradually increase the speed and slowly begin adding the 1/4 cup of sugar a tablespoon at a time. Whisk until the whites glisten and stiff peaks form.

Bake the Rice Pudding

Now, pour the rice pudding into a casserole dish. Top the pudding with the meringue, covering all around the dish. Bake for about 20 minutes so that the meringue is lightly brown.

The rice pudding thickens up as it cools, so serve at room temperature for a creamy texture.
