Rice Rice Baby................................


Tee hee in my head I'm very funny, really I am and I'm singing da da da dala da da to the tune of Ice Ice Baby still!!! Also given the fact that I was hungover today for the second Saturday in a row (I'm a filthy stop out) this was the perfect accompaniment to the sprouts and broccoli with chilli, garlic and lemon that I had for my dinner cos I had no cash in my purse for take away and couldn't have been bothered getting out of my pyjamas to go to the bank!!!

But enough rambling, this is a recipe from Jamie at Home and is as easy as can be, myself and the husbag are big fans of rice pudding, he eats his with jam while I like mine plain, we're still big fans and after having this there'll be no more rice out of a tin for us!!!

You need

1.2 litres of milk
200g pudding rice
2 tbsp vanilla sugar

I used low fat organic milk and the original says full fat but as far as I'm concered there was no difference in taste at all, secondly I used 2 tbsps of normal caster sugar and the seeds of half a vanilla pod. I also cooked the emptied pod with the rice and took it out when it was done.

Put everything into a pot, bring it to a gentle simmer and put the lid on, stir occasionally and after 3o mins, homemade rice pudding WAY better than anything out of a tin. If the rice is a little thick then you can add a bit more milk to it to loosen it. Serve with jam or leave plain

rice pudding is comfort food to me... I made that as one of my first recipes in my blog and recently made an ice cream with it. Love, love, love.

Ha! too funny. I just re-watched the first Austen Powers movie where Mr Ice himself was on ice along with Austen and what did we have for dessert that night? Rice pudding!
