Good old fashioned rice pudd with stewed fruit

Cold nights call for good old fashioned hot grub followed by lovely warm desserts to keep the chill off the tootsies.

1 cup of white rice boiled in a pot of 1.5 -2 cups of hot water for 15 mins, turn off the heat, whack a lid on and let it stand to absorb the water.
After 20-30 mins add enough milk to turn it soupy (or less to taste) heat, stirring, then add maple syrup, 2 teaspoons of sugar (or not, to taste) ground ginger, vanilla essence and serve with stewed rhubarb on top,
With a healthy dollop of vanilla yoghurt on top of the rhubarb (or cream if you're really game to clog those arteries).

Another adult alternative my mum used to do was soak a cup of sultanas/raisins in half a cup of brandy/rum/whisky then stir them into the cooked rice pudding.
There was never any left the next morning...

  3. Great to see you back on the blog- missed you in your resting time. By the way, I think it might be warmer here today than there- lots of sunshine today. Won't last though!

  4. Coincidence! I've been thinking about rice pudding for days now. Just haven't got around to making it. My recipe is different, rice, milk, sugar and vanilla essence, then baked in the oven until creamy.

  5. STOP! I'm salivating ... and that's not a pretty sight in the middle of a caravan park full of grey nomads. Any more, and they might think I'm drooling!!

    Adult version sounds fab!!!

  11. I call that creamed rice, yummy. My dads girlfriend used to make it but she added whipped cream so it was light and fluffy then a can of crushed drained pineapple. She always made it when she knew I was coming for a visit :P I like the idea of maple syrup with it!

  12. I like baked rice custard with loads of cinnamon and whipped cream or yoghurt but these days I have to work out whether it is low GI, low cholesterol, low fat and no sugar and none of my recipes are that. Sultanas soaked in booze is a nice addition but booze is off the menu as well.

  14. Hi, Jayne. Thinking of you today, and hoping that you're kicked back on a sofa eating rice pudding, having a delightfully indolent rest. Love.
