Chocolate Chip & Raisin Rice Pudding

So NerdDad and I recently went wheat free (not so much the kids) and I am still trying to emotionally deal with that;). When I started thinking about making holiday food I quickly realized that I didn’t really have much in the way of fab desserts. So I decided to resurrect the rice pudding. But the problem is that I knew that NerdDad wasn’t a big fan. He said it tends to be dry and not sweet. Well, I rectified those problems! I also made them smaller by cooking them in souffle ramekins.

NerdDad says they are very tasty and have almost a bread like consistency that may come from the Jasmine rice that I use. But I am sure you can use any kind of white rice.

The batter!


6 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
3 1/2 cups milk
1/3 cup raisins
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
4 cups cooked Jasmine rice

Prepared Custard Cup

Preheat your oven at 325 degrees. Butter your ramekins and the add sugar and cinnamon. Turn until it the cinnamon and sugar covers the butter and dump the excess. Beat with a whisk the eggs until slightly frothy. Then whisk in the sugar until smooth. Then add the cinnamon, vanilla and salt. Then whisk in the milk. Stir in the rest of the ingredients.

Then ladle everything into your ramekins and place them on a cookie sheet. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until a knife placed 1/2 way toward the center comes out fairly clean. The same procedure if you bake it in one large baking dish.


Our Wonderful Ingredients

So I was lucky to get all my great dairy for this recipe from Smart and Final! But why am I talking about that now? Well because of Smart & Final’s “Help Our Teachers, Help Our Kids” (#SmartFinalSupportsSoCalSchools)!

Students & families collect Real California milk seals from select First Street products, then teachers submit seals. Each seal counts as one sweepstakes entry. Teachers who submit 100 seals get 25 Scholastic books or $25 school supply gift card. Each teacher entrant gets one Scholastic book. The California Milk Advisory Board is going to announce winners in February.
