Baked Rice Custard

This is my husband’s all time favourite snack/dessert/’breakfast’ that he grew up with. This is a melt-in-your mouth custard with the rice and sultanas sinking to the bottom of the dish as a bottom layer, with the custard sitting on top. I prefer it served hot, however my husband loves it chilled straight out of the fridge (he refuses to eat it hot!)

You will need a large roasting pan, and a smaller roasting pan/heatproof dish to fit in.

You are essentially steaming this custard with the Bain Marie style cooking. I did look into steaming it in the Varoma, however the Varoma steaming tray is way too small for this mixture (I tried fitting different heatproof dishes in there but they would be too narrow and deep for this mixture and it is nice to have that thin layer of rice and custard with each spoonful).

I have a quick question, i usually have leftover rice from when i do a curry- and i would love to be able to use this leftover rice in this dish. What is the weight of the cooked rice?

This is taking an hour to cook the custard or even longer.
