My Nanna's Stove Top Rice Pudding/Rice Custard

My nanna made this for me as a child, I was a very picky eater, but I loved this. My nanna would swap between calling rice custard and rice pudding, so have decided to call it both! I have shared this on a forum and realised that I hadn't posted it. So here it is. I personally like this warm with stewed apples, but my children like it warm with ice-cream. It is also wonderful cold and re-heats well too. Sultana's can be added when cooking. Choose the condensed milk if you prefer a sweeter dessert.

ingredients

directions

  • Add all ingredients, exept the cinammon in a heavy based pot.
  • Cook over a low/medium heat for 35-45 minutes, stirring often until you get the texture of rice that your family likes (we like it VERY soft).
  • Do not let this boil.
  • Serve hot, warm or cold.
  • Sprinkle cinnamon over the top. I like to add homemade stewed apples.
  • If you choose to refrigerate this, wait until it has stopped steaming.
  • Careefully press the plastic wrap down and over the rice pudding so that it is touching to stop a skin forming.

    My mom loves rice pudding so I made this for her. I used skim milk and instead of heavy cream I had some whole milk that my DGD didnt finish and it needed to be used. Started with 1/4 cup of sugar and added more as I tasted. Did stir in some raisins before adding pudding to a serving bowl and letting cool. Creamy, sweet, and delicious! Made and reviewed for ZWT8 - 2012.
