I've been making this recipe for years and it is so good. My daughter begs for it pretty regularly! It is made with arborio rice. It can be expensive, unless you find it at Trader Joe's or in a bulk bin. Sometimes Vons sells a small box for a couple of dollars. I like using arborio because the rice is so creamy. It's a delicious treat.
Total Time: a little over 2 hours
Yield: About 8 servings.
This is a rice pudding that has Splenda in the place of sugar and almond milk in the place of dairy milk. It is an excellent side to a Thanksgiving dinner. It has an old fashioned feel to it, and it tastes remarkable.
Store in the refrigerator. May be served warm or chilled.
Wash rice. Add other ingredients and pour into a greased baking dish. Bake at 325 degrees F about 2 hours or until rice is tender. Stir occasionally, folding in brown layer which forms on top.
Scald milk. Wash the rice and drain it. Place in greased 2 qt. baking dish. Add sugar, salt, vanilla, cinnamon and butter. Mix; pour in scalded milk. Bake in 350 degree F oven until brown crust forms (about 1/2 hour).

I found this in a 1960's cookbook I hope it's what your looking for.
Old-Time Rice Pudding
Mix rice, sugar, salt, and nutmeg in a shallow 2 1/2 quart baking dish. Add 1 quart milk. Then to prevent spilling, add second quart of milk after placing dish in the oven. Bake in moderate oven 325 degrees F 2 1/2 hours stirring twice, during first hour. Stir the brown crust into the pudding several times during the remainder of baking. Add raisins half hour before pudding is done. Then allow crust to form again. Serve with cream, if desired. Makes 6 to 8 servings. (01/31/2008)

Here is a wonderful recipe I obtained many years ago. It is time consuming to make, but worth it. It's very smooth and creamy.
In a pot place quart of milk and washed rice. Bring to a boil over low flame stirring frequently until rice is cooked. Take 1/2 can of evaporated milk and mix with milk and rice stirring constantly for about 10-15 min. (If you see skin forming just lift off and dispose.) Add remaining evaporated milk and cook until thick. Add sugar and stir. Add beaten eggs, vanilla and and stir. Shut off heat. Pour into dish and let cool. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Cover and refrigerate. (02/01/2008)
I've had this recipe forever and it was my daughter's favorite pudding when they were small.

This recipe dates back to the early 1900's it was my grandmothers and passed down. I have never found an easier of better tasting recipe
Put all in a heavy pot with the exception of the egg whites. Cook over med low heat stirring frequently, not to burn. Cook until rice is cooked and mixture becomes thickened. Mixture should coat the back of a wooden spoon but not be as thick as pudding.
Whip egg whites to soft peaks. Remove from heat and fold into rice mixture (you may also add raisins) pour in serving bowl, tray or individual dishes. Top with cinnamon and chill for at least 1 hour.
Additional sugar and vanilla can be used according to your taste
