Traditional Rice Pudding
Amazing - loved it. I love rice pudding but adding [evaporated] milk just made it so much better and with a toffee like tone to...

Pudding rice

5½oz (150g)


2oz (50g)

Whole milk

1½ pints (900ml)

Vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste


¼ fresh nutmeg, grated or pinch of ground nutmeg


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.
