Had lots of milk & cream left over from Chrstmas & decided to make rice pudding... put in microwave in a large bowl covered in cling film. cooked on medium for 20 minutes - stirring well after each 5 mins - came out absolutely perfect! Left on the side to cool - and added some more milk and stirred as rice had continued to absorb liquid... ok so you don't get the brown skin on top.. but it's a great way of making rice pudding very fast!

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!
