How to make real rice pudding:
Made properly, this really is a wonderful dessert. It bears absolutely no resemblance to tinned rice pudding. For the true aficionado this is also delicious eaten cold and the skin which forms during the cooking is something to fight for!


2 tablespoons pudding rice
1 tablespoon caster/superfine sugar
1 pint milk
1 tablespoon butter
(see measure conversions for more information)


- Grease a 1 1/2 pint ovenproof dish.
- Put the rice and sugar into the dish.
- Pour the milk over the rice and sugar.
- Cut the butter into very small cubes and sprinkle it onto the top of the pudding.
- Grate some nutmeg over the pudding.
- Bake at 150 degrees C. (see temperature conversions) for about 2 1/2 hours.
