My kids just love this recipe, we have made it many times at home on a Sunday evening, and it always goes down a treat. There is something really satisfying bout a small bowl of custard after a main meal, have you noticed? There are many variations possible with this recipe, for example you can change the raisins to sun dried apricots for a nice change.

Delicious Gluten-Free Rice Custard

My kids just love this recipe, we have made it many times at home on a Sunday evening, and it always goes down a treat. There is something really satisfying bout a small bowl of custard after a main meal, have you noticed? There are many variations possible with this recipe, for example you can change the raisins to sun dried apricots for a nice change.

Ingredients:

  •     4 cups milk
  •     1/2 cup sugar
  •     1/4 cup rice, uncooked
  •     zest from one lemon
  •     1/4 tsp salt
  •     2 eggs, well beaten
  •     1/2 cup raisins
  •     cinnamon, to taste

Method:

  • In a large bowl, combine the milk, sugar, rice, lemon peel and salt. Stir to dissolve the sugar.
  • Pour into a well buttered 2-quart casserole dish. Set the casserole in a shallow baking pan filled with 1 inch hot water.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 325 degrees for 1 hour.
  • Remove from oven and stir well. Continue baking 45 minutes longer. Remove from oven.
  • Gradually stir a small amount of hot milk mixture into beaten eggs; stir back into remaining milk mixture in the casserole, blending well. Stir in raisins.
  • Return to oven and bake 30 minutes longer, or until the custard is set and the rice is cooked. Remove from water bath.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon and serve warm, it won’t last long! Before you know it they will all want second helpings.
