I did have proper pudding rice, and all the ingredients to make a proper bake in the oven rice pudding, but I didn't have 3 hours to spare. Instead I did all in a pan in less than 30 mins, and it tasted delicious.
|Cheat's Rice Pudding|
3/4 cup pudding rice
1 cup milk
1 tsp butter
3/4 cup currants or raisins
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
generous splash of maple syrup
Boil the kettle while measuring the rice
Pour boiling water onto the rice and cook for about 15 mins (until just cooked)
Drain all the water from the rice and return it to the pan
Add the milk and bring back to the boil then turn down the heat to a simmer
Add butter fruit and spices and maple syrup, mix well and heat through.
Serve when all liquid has absorbed (for me this was pretty much straight away!)
Quantities are approximate, and this served us for 2 meals with a little bit left, so I am guessing it would serve 4.
