Method

  1. Combine the milk, cream, rice, vanilla, sugar and lemon zest in a heavy-based saucepan. Bring gently to a boil, stirring continuously. Once bubbling, turn the heat to low and gently simmer for about 45 mins, stirring frequently to stop it sticking, until the rice is just tender. Lay a sheet of cling film directly on the surface of the rice, cool to room temperature, then chill until cold.

  2. To serve, combine the syrup ingredients in a small pan. Melt together, then bubble until syrupy for 4-5 mins. Cool for a few mins while you loosen the chilled rice pudding with some single cream (it will have become more solid) – just gently stir in a splash at a time until it’s spoonable. Divide between serving bowls and top with some warm rum & raisin syrup.

I've made this many times and it's gone down a storm each time! The high fat content cannot be argued with but since it's so rich and creamy you don't actually need a large helping, let's face it, anything that's rich will make you feel sick if you eat too much of it. Don't be put off, this is a gorgeous dessert, well worth trying.

Extremely rich, wouldn't make again. Lemon rind gives a lovely flavour though

This was delicious! Made this for dessert for a small dinner party, it went down very well. I agree that it has a high fat content but portions were not generous and its not an every day dessert.

This tasted really lovely but I won't be making it again. Far too much fat in this recipe with whole milk, double cream, single cream and butter. It made me feel quite queasy afterwards :(
