One of the highlights of winter (anywhere) is the puddings. The smell of home-made sweets wafting through the air is the greatest on a cold, stormy night. That’s why we included baking a pudding on the Wheatbelt Winter Bucket List (which you should totally check out if you haven’t yet). This rice pudding is a delicious and easy dessert that is ideal for using up left-over rice. Here’s how to do it!
You will need | 2 eggs, 2 cups of cooked rice (we use long grain), 1/4 cup of sugar, 2.5 cups of milk, vanilla essence, nutmeg, butter
Step 1 | Preheat the oven to 160 degrees (Celsius)
Step 2 | Beat together the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy.
Step 3 | Add a few drops of vanilla essence to the mixture
Step 4 | Add the milk and mix together
Step 5 | Evenly spread the rice and sultanas out into a oven-proof dish
Step 6 | Gently pour the liquid mixture over the rice and sultanas
Step 7 | Sprinkle with ground nutmeg
Step 8 | Add a few dobs of butter evenly over the top of the pudding
Step 9 | Put the pudding dish into a shallow dish of water and then place both dishes into the preheated oven for 50 – 60 minutes
Step 9 | Serve when hot, and enjoy! Try it with cream, or some preserved fruits.
