Scottish Recipes - Rice Pudding

"He's such a wimp, he canny knock a skin fae a Rice Pudding" 

Mmmmm  Rice Pudding

Homemade Scottish Rice Pudding

Creamy and delicious.  I love this warm desert

In Scotland there are two different types of Rice Pudding

The first is 'store bought' Rice Pudding in a Tin, a favourite brand is Ambrosia Rice Pudding, I love this stuff too

We can actually buy this at our local supermarket in the British Food isle here in Texas from time to time

Another type of Rice Pudding is homemade Rice Pudding

Homemade tends to be more thick and substantial where Rice Pudding in a can is more runny, both are entirely different and both are delicious in there own right

So here we are making Homemade Rice Pudding

Cooking time for this desert is 1.5 hours, but its worth waiting on

Makes 4 servings

You will need

600ml/1pint Whole Milk (Here is USA I used half and half to make it more creamy)
40g/1.5 oz Short grain or medium grain rice
Few drops of Vanilla essence
40g/1.5 oz Fine Sugar
Knob of butter

  • Bring milk or milk and cream combo to boil in a saucepan
Boil Milk

  • Lower heat and add rice, sugar and vanilla and simmer for a few minutes

  • Transfer mixture to an open top oven proof dish, top with butter
Mixture in Oven proof Dish

  • Bake in oven until golden on top for 1.5 hours at 375F/160C
mmmm, Do you see that Skin? Yummy.

  • Spoon out into 4 individual bowls

  • Serve hot, adding Cream or Half and half, to taste

A tip if you don't have too much time to stand at the stove is to mix all ingredients together in the oven proof dish and put straight into oven, adding an extra 15 minutes to baking time

Other variations for serving are enjoy cold.
Or to make more creamy add quarter pint of cream 
Or add cinnamon and raisins to make more spicy

Another favourite way is to top with a spoonful of warmed jam
