My Precious Great Aunt Louise’s Rice Pudding <3 and my Fruity Rice Pudding

My parents and Grandparents have all passed away.  I don’t talk with my sisters…..often.  I have cousins I chat with through email and facebook.  I moved away from home at the age of 20 and with it I left behind the opportunity to gather the Treasured Recipes of My Family.  I have asked others to share theirs with me.  Through this I have reconnected with my very Sweet Cousin, Linda.  She is so special to me and is always there when I need her.  She graciously shared a few Treasured Recipes with me of our family.  (Thank you so much Linda…Love You!) This Rice Pudding Recipe was her Precious Mama’s.  I know you will enjoy it! 

My Great Aunt Louise.  I remember when I was very young…She lived nearby.  We didn’t have any other family that lived in the state, it was such a Blessing to share time with her and have family closeby.   When My Precious Mama was very sick, and in the hospital,  Aunt Louise came to stay with us…My Darlin’ Daddy, my sisters and I.  She helped take care of our family and our home.  She was a rock for us and I am forever grateful for her and the memories I have of her.  I truly Love and Miss her…..<3

Great Aunt Louise’s Rice Pudding

2 cups cooked rice
4 eggs, beaten
3 cups milk
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup raisins…optional

Beat Eggs. Stir in sugar. Add other ingredients. Stir. Spray oven proof
casserole dish with Pam. Pour mixture into dish. Set dish in pan of hot
water and bake at 300 degrees for 90 minutes. After 30 minutes of cooking
insert spoon at edge of pudding and stir from the bottom to distribute
rice and raisins.  

Fruity Rice Pudding

I changed mine a little by adding 1/4 to 1/2 pureed banana 
I used a whole banana, pictured above and it was great, but it was a little too much
1 cup crushed pineapple, drained
1 1/2 cups diced apples
increased cinnamon to 3/4 teaspoon
decreased vanilla to 1 teaspoon
Place in a crock pot and cooked on low for 3-5 hours, depending on your crock pot.  
Stirring occasionally once it starts to thicken.
