As you know I love food, but I especially love home cooked food and when the gorgeous and extremely talented Vanessa Kimbell put a shout out on twitter for recipe testers for her new, exciting and innovative cook book Prepped, so I put up my hand like I did back when I was in school and opted for the rice pudding.
- 1 litre whole milk
- 1 vanilla pod, split lengthways
- 50g Vanilla Sugar
- 1/4 tsp grated nutmeg
- Pinch of salt
- 60g butter
- 150g Arborio rice
1 Preheat the oven to 150°C/gas mark 2.
2 Put all the above ingredients into an ovenproof casserole dish, stir well and pop it into the oven for 2 hours in total. After 30 minutes, open the oven door and stir it all again.
3 When it’s time for the pudding to come out, it’s not always set as firmly as you would like, so you must leave it for a good hour. It will carry on absorbing the liquid and thicken up more.
Just look at it, it was divine. Now you may now know this, but MadDad is a rice pudding expert having grown up on a dairy farm and he gave this a real thumbs up.
A real comfort food and I we loved it. I can not wait until the book is out to try out more of Vanessa’s recipes.
Oh – this looks so good! My mouth is watering just looking a the pictures ! Fantastic !
Thank you so much !

OMG I adore rice pudding! It looks delicious. Looking at the recipe it sounds quite easy to make so I may have to give this a go.
This is a big ‘may’ from me as I can barely boil an egg 🙂 I burn everything but my love of rice pudding may be just the incentive I need to at least try and cook.
ps thanks for the advice you gave me yesterday, it may be the winner and Sophie hasn’t totally dismissed the idea yet.
That looks really yummy. I am still waiting for that dinner invite 😉
Actually, I’d be happy with a packed lunch for cybermummy. Are you coming? xx
I love rice-pudding. I never knew it was so easy to make – ours always came out of the tin. So thanks for that and also congrats on winning the Spread-a-smile award this week from Mummy’s little Monkey – you deserve it.
