Rice Pudding …

Rice Pudding 001

 

Rice Pudding is such an easy yet delicious recipe. It was one of the first recipes I learned to cook and this particular recipe is the original one that Mum taught me. It’s classic and simple, using basic ingredients that you’ll find in the fridge and pantry and is one of those fantastic comfort foods to warm tummies in winter.

 

I love this particular recipe because it doesn’t use too much sugar. I normally serve it topped with chopped fresh fruit, a drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon but the serving possibilities are endless.

 

I love the consistency of this pudding but a little more milk can be added if you prefer a slightly “wetter” texture. Also, don’t be tempted to cook this in a hurry because it really needs a slow, gentle simmer. The quantities used in this recipe will produce four smallish serves, so double the mixture if needed.

  1. It definitely is rice pudding season. I didn’t grow up on rice pudding as my mother did and she hated it. Her mother made it like glue and so my mother had shocking memories of it and I think I was in my 20’s before I tasted rice pudding. I’ve been making it since I bought a rice cooker and it’s such a comforting dessert. Yours looks beautiful the way you’ve presented it xx

    • I’ve been making this since my kids were little as it was a great soft food when they started eating. We still love it and it’s so versatile … you can serve it so many ways!
