Simple Rice Pudding

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Mandy

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.

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!
