Pudding rice

5½oz (150g)

Sugar

2oz (50g)

Whole milk

1½ pints (900ml)

Vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste

1tsp

¼ fresh nutmeg, grated or pinch of ground nutmeg

Butter

1oz (25g)

You will also need:

2pt (1.4Ltr) ovenproof dish, greased

Step 1 of 3

Preheat the oven to 150°C, (130°C for fan ovens), Gas Mark 2.

Step 2 of 3

Sit the dish on a baking tray.  Place the rice and sugar into the dish and pour over the milks and vanilla, stir together and then top with the grated nutmeg.  

Step 3 of 3

Finally top with small blobs of butter and carefully transfer to the oven on the middle shelf for 2 ¼ hours.  Stir the pudding after about 45 minutes.  

We love the skin on the top but if you prefer you can cover with foil to prevent this.  Did you know you can also put your rice pudding in a slow cooker – cook on HIGH for 3 ½ hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great memories This brought some many memories back of my mother in law as she always made her rice you with carnations milk, it tasted so creamy and we always asked for seconds. I made it the other day and my granddaughter asked for the recipe and could not believe it got carnation milk in. So another recipe passed on to the next generation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Childhood Memories. I bought Carnation evaporated milk. I made home made rice pudding. Oh my word, it bought a tear to my eyes, I made it just like my mum and mamma used to make. I know the recipe off by heart. If ever I want to be a child again I make this pudding. All my grandchildren and children love it. The stuff memories are made of for generations.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I made this yesterday and after 21/2 hours at 150 it hadn’t even started to cook. I turned my oven up to 225 for another hour then it had just started to set on the top.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Taste was ok I made this last week and it came out too liquidity, so I ended up sieving most of the milk out. I prefer more creamy
