I found this in a Take 5 ingredients book, it' so simple as it uses store-bought custard. Serve it with your favourite fruit for a quick & easy dessert.


  1. Combine rice & milk in a medium saucepan, bring to the boil then reduce heat to low and simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring often, until milk is absorbed & rice is tender.
  2. Remove pan from heat and stir in custard. Transfer to a bowl, cool slightly, then refrigerate until chilled.
  3. Serve with fruit & cream.

This is a very good recipe for rice pudding. The ratio of milk and rice is perfect for a thick and creamy pudding and the addition of custard is a nice change to the usual. My sis, my mum and me really enjoyed this tasty treat on a cold winters day. YUM! :)
I used a little less custard and mine was of the thick kind, but other than that stuck to your recipe.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this wonderful recipe with us, Mandy!

I prepared this yesterday morning to have last night but it didn't eventuate but had tonight and was well enjoyed. I used doongara rice (diabetic friendly) and cooked the full 20 minutes (all milk absorbed) and it tasted cooked but once chilled it definately needed a little longer so will consider a 1/4 cup extra of milk (hi-lo) and cook an extra 5 minutes or as the DH said use a different rice. Served with fresh strawberries for 3 out of 4 and a dollop of cream. Thank you Mandy, made for Edition 5 - Make My Recipe - a game of tag.

I loved it, DD liked it when it was still warm and DS doesn't eat rice at all, not even in pudding. Easy to make, i used strawberries and left out the cream as we're not too fond of it. Actually it's rather nice to have that whole bowl of pudding just for myself for a change, lol. Made for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers for ZWT4
