This is one of my cheap go to desserts. While busy working, I had a taste for a good comfort food dessert, and being I had white rice, raisins, vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, and heavy cream, this was a no brainer. This is an adaptation of Paula Deen’s baked rice pudding that I love because of the custard cream layer that naturally separates on top while baking. Mmm…delish! Leave it to her to bring you that old grandma type of heirloom recipe. This reminds me of the one my grandma made growing up, but I favor this one because it is more “custardy,” not thick. I think next time I will add some orange zest to give it a different spin. Even though this is a cheap cheat dessert, I take comfort in the fact of all the good all natural and/or organic ingredients I used from the organic raisins all the way down to the organic cream. Nostalgia at its best!
