Help with Rice Pudding, please

nruter, Apr 20, 8:27am
Really enjoy rice pudding and use the recipe from the Edmonds book. However, I can never get it nice and creamy, always cook long and slow and use short-grain rice.
Any suggestions, please.

keep adding milk you can make a pouring hole in the skin and pour in milk

Use arborio rice and substitute all or some of the milk for cream.

I am wondering if you have a pressure cooker>>

I don't own one anymore but the richest loveliest rice pudding I have ever had I used to do in the pressure cooker. I'm sorry I can't give you the exact details - it;s so long since I owned one and too old now to go to the expense of buying another one - but it made the most wonderful rice pudding, rich, creamy and with a nutty flavour and golden appearance - my kids loved it.

I have tried it occasionally done in the oven etc but nothing comes up to that standard - so those who own a pressure cooker, do try your rice puddings - they are as superlative as a very ordinary dish can be.

Have been told that adding evaporated milk helps but have never tried it

Creamy Rice Pudding

Yummy, had this last night and its the best rice pudding Ive ever tasted. I got it out of the NZ Womens Weekly, it's a Jo Seager one.
8 heaped tablespoons aborio rice
1/4 cup water
300ml milk
300ml cream (or you can use all milk)
Large knob butter
2 tblspns vanilla essence
4 tbspns castor sugar.
Place rice, water, milk and cream in saucepan. Bring to the boil, then turn down to a very gentle simmer. Stir every so often for 20 mins, until the rice has swelled up and thickened. Rice should be soft, but have a little bite to it. Stir in the butter, vanilla and sugar and stir until dissolved. Pour into a dish and place under gentle grill for four to five mins until a brown skin develops. Serve with cream. Serves 4.

I sometimes put mine in a big jug in the crockpot when I have something else in there. Always yummy. I have an oval crockpot which has more room for this than a round one

I do it in the crockpot too. (ANd sometimes add a tin of coconut cream/milk or evaporated milk aswell) Or a beaten egg about 30 minutes before I want to serve it

Are you using low fat/non fat milk instead of full cream, non-homogenised milk? I've only ever made it with silver top milk. That was a long time ago now but it always comes out rich and creamy, especially if I added some extra cream as well.

Baked rice pudding is always creamier than when made on the dtove top but I made mine in the rice cooker yesterday and it was really soft and creamy

Don't add the sugar until its cooked and it will stay nice and white.

As it does in the rice cooker also I noticed but actually mine is usually more of a creamy colour because I usually add vanilla essence - I use less sugar when I do that too as the vanilla seems to sweeten it as well
