If I've got any fruit sitting in the fruit bowl looking sad I add it in rather than waste it- apples, pears and plums are all great! But I have to add a bit of extra milk too, especially with dried fruit like raisins or dried apricots. Lovely winter food, but good cold in the summer too.

I always make rice pudding on the hob. You need to watch it carefully but all the stirring makes it really creamy even if only made with semi-skimmed milk.

I've moved to Australia and they don't do pudding rice out here! What rice should I use instead?

Can skimmed milk be used instead??

I cook this recipe using rice, sugar HOT skimmed milk butter and nutmeg and add the evaporated milk after 30 mins. This cuts down on the cooking time by half an hour!

my pudding was done in one hour. not so creamy, I could still feel the rice. I'll put more milk next time, since I put 200 g rice.

I have loved Rice Pudding since being a child, It's Comfort Food. Made this last night for friends who were missing the UK ? I make mine with half full milk and half cream !!! Vanilla sugar, butter and the nutmeg on the top !! I know but its once in a while, its a really wonderful treat. It is so creamy, left it in the oven on very very low for 3 hours. Also doubled up on the recipe because then men always ask for seconds and flight who is going to get the toffee bits from around the bowl! Friends loved it too and took away the recipe and my last packet of Riz Rond!!

One of my favourite puddings and ideal for absolutley everyone at any time of the year. I add a small can of evaporated milk to make it more creamy with a few drops of vanilla essence, add a couple knobs of butter and sprinkle with grated nutmeg.
