Dishes of Comfort

Ivonne and Orchidea are hosting an event called "Dishes of Comfort" this month, so here I am, showing up under the wire with my contributions. Of rice. And more rice.

Baked Rice Pudding

2 1/2 cups milk
4 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 vanilla bean, seeds only
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/3 cup raisins, optional
3 Tbsp. candied ginger, optional
Cinnamon or Nutmeg

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk until combined. Pour into oven safe bowl or pan, sprinkle with cinnamon.

Cook in a water bath at 350-f degrees for one hour.

Combine all ingredients to your liking and enjoy!
