Method

  1. Heat oven to 140C/120C fan/gas 1. Put the milk, cream, zest and vanilla pod in a saucepan. Gently bring to a simmer, then stir in the caster sugar and rice.
  2. Transfer mixture to a shallow ovenproof dish and dot the butter on top. Bake for 30 mins, then stir well and cook for 1 hr more until the pudding is soft and creamy, and a golden skin has formed on top. The depth and type of dish you use will affect the cooking time, so if the pudding seems too loose, return to the oven and check every 10 mins or so. Once cooked, rest for 10 mins before serving.

I have made this several times now. Fantastic. I double the quantities and use Long Life cream, evaporated milk and UHT long life milk. I sprinkle with fresh grated nutmeg before baking and its tastes just like Ambrosia. Yum, yum, yum. Certainly doesn't last long in this house!

I made this with a combination of double cream and semi skimmed milk as that's what was available in my fridge. Loved the freshness that the lemon brought to it. Cooked it in the roasting oven of my Aga whilst it was in slumber mode and 4 hours later we had the most deliciously creamy rice pudding. Couldn't resist a dollop of raspberry jam with, for a touch of school days nostalgia. :-).

Mine didn't thicken either! I probably did something wrong but I think there's not very rice in the recipe compared to the amount of milk and cream. I added another 100g of rice and 50g of caster sugar and thickened it on the hob in the end.

Lovely recipe, the whole family loved it. I made a shopping error and bought a 280ml carton of double cream, so used this and then made up the difference with milk (I used semi skimmed) and didn't have a vanilla pod so used 1 tsp of vanilla extract.

I agree with the other reviewers and say that it makes nowhere near enough to serve 6 people!

Any thoughts on whether this would work with dairy substitutes like soya milk and soya cream? I'm lactose intolerant but used to absolutely adore rice pudding as a kid so would love to find a way to make it again without giving myself a poorly tummy!

You can definitely substitute the milk and cream for coconut milk. I make a similar recipe from the River Cottage Baby and toddler cook book and it's delicious with the coconut milk.

Not sure where I went wrong, but mine didn't thicken. Also I found it quite rich with all that cream!

Very easy, tasted delicious. Used vanilla extract rather than pod. Don't think would serve 6! Used Elmlea and skimmed milk to reduce fat content.

Delicious! The lemon gave it a lovely fresh taste. Have always made traditional rice pudding with a touch of nutmeg - think this will be the new favourite. The four of us demolished it in one sitting, definately wouldn't serve 6 in our house!
