Making Rice Pudding

I learned this rice pudding recipe from my dad. We would have rice pudding regularly as a dessert during the cold winter months, and I would always look forward to it immensely. I took this recipe to university with me, and since then, this recipe has been described as "like having a hug on the inside."

It can be served as-is, fresh out of the oven, or it can be cooled and served with fruit. This guide has many serving suggestions to suit any mood that you could be in.

  • 100g Sugar
  • 1.4L (1400ml) Milk

  1. Preheat oven to 150C (300F, or 130C (270F) for a fan oven].
  2. Butter a heatproof baking dish.
  3. Tip in the rice and sugar, then stir through the milk. Sprinkle the nutmeg and cinnamon over the top.
  4. Cook in the oven for 2 hours (or until rice reaches desired softness and consistency).

Serving Suggestions

  • Stirring Nutella or melted chocolate into the rice pudding when it comes out of the oven will give you a decedent chocolate rice pudding.
  • If you omit some of the sugar in the recipe, you can then sweeten it with honey when you are serving it.
  • You can put this rice pudding in the fridge to cool it, and then can be served with berries or apples as a refreshing treat.
