I think the sauce makes this rice pudding! It really is easy to make and we love to just keep it on the table for people to add to their individual serving. You can easily use rum extract or just leave out the rum all together. The sauce will still be good regardless. Many people ask “can I leave out the raisins“.. of course.

1cuplong grain ricecooked (I think you could use minute rice in this recipe, too.)
120 ounce can crushed pineapple, undrained
1/4cupmilkI used 2%
1cupwalnut pieces or nuts of your choice
4tablespoonsbutter or margarine
1tablespoonwhite corn syrup
2tablespoonsrumcould use bourbon, too. Can add more if you want. If you are a non-drinker you can use rum flavoring or just leave this out and add 2 teaspoons vanilla extract instead of one.
In a large bowl while rice is cooking mix all the other ingredients together except butter. Once rice is cooked mix it into your other ingredients. Spray a casserole dish and fill with rice mixture. (Can add another 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg on top if you like nutmeg.)
Bake in preheated 325 degree oven 55 -60 minutes. Serve warm with rum sauce over top. Makes about 10 to 12 servings. Keeps well for several days in refrigerator. Reheat in microwave
Tip: To make rice whiter and fluffier add a teaspoon of lemon juice to the water before adding the rice.
