“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 Nutrition


  1. Add all ingredients, exept the cinammon in a heavy based pot.
  2. 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).
  3. Do not let this boil.
  4. Serve hot, warm or cold.
  5. Sprinkle cinnamon over the top. I like to add homemade stewed apples.
  6. If you choose to refrigerate this, wait until it has stopped steaming.
  7. Careefully press the plastic wrap down and over the rice pudding so that it is touching to stop a skin forming.
