Baked Rice Pudding

Today I am posting one of my favorite recipes, which actually comes from my mom. She has been making this baked rice pudding since I can remember, and it is one of my all-time favorite dishes. This year she made me a whole casserole of it for my birthday, and the pictures of her creation are posted above. This dish is wonderfully creamy on top with a beautiful custard taste. Adjust the amount of raisins to your liking; I prefer using 1/3 cup, my mom likes to toss in a heaping 2/3 cup, but my grandmother always preferred to go without the raisins. You can heat this in the microwave and eat it warm, although I prefer it cold straight from the refrigerator. I hope you enjoy this baked rice pudding as much as I have over the years.
