Stovetop Rice Pudding

Posted on February 14, 2015

I love the ease of this stovetop rice pudding. It genuinely takes so little effort you could probably do it whilst having a nap, or at the very least daydreaming of sunny days by the beach.

To serve 6 adults (although what I tend to do is make this much, serve 2 adults and 3 children and then keep some cold for the next day!) you’ll need:

50g caster sugar

200g short grain rice

1.2l whole milk

Simply add all your ingredients to a pan. Bring to a gently boil and then simmer with the lid on for 1 to 1.5 hours or until the rice has absorbed all of the milk. Told you it was easy!

This gives a much more oozy rice pudding than the traditional oven baked variety but I prefer this – who wants to be able to take slices of their rice pudding anyway?

The 50g of sugar called for in this recipe means it isn’t particularly sweet, but add or take away sugar to your own taste. I like to keep it plain so we can sweeten it up with fruit or other toppings like nuts and sultanas. For a very decadent treat why not place a few squares of chocolate in the bottom of the bowl before piling on the rice pudding – it’s worth doing if only to see little people’s faces when they realise there is a hidden lake of melted chocolate buried deep in their dessert.
