This old fashioned rice pudding is baked, custard-y and full of flavor. And best of all- it couldn’t be easier to pull together.

All you need is some cooked rice, a few eggs, some sugar, milk, cream, honey, spices and pecan chips. Stir everything together, bake for 45 minutes- and out comes a delightful rice pudding that tastes great warm or chilled.

It’s better than store bought, and you probably have at least half of the ingredients lying around the pantry!

Baked Rice Pudding: An oldie but a goodie!

Rice pudding may be old fashioned, but it is most definitely an underrated delight! Skeptical? Serve this Baked Pecan Rice Pudding at your next dinner party or family dinner, and watch it disappear! It’s great warm and gooey, or chilled and creamy. You can drizzle it with a bit of honey for a little extra oomph, or- if you really want to make this dessert ultra-decadent, serve it topped with my Honey and Rum Whipped Cream!
