This recipe has barely any sugar, so it's not going to harm all of your New Year 'healthy eating' resolutions. I also know that many of you are currently experiencing a heavy snowfall. So sit by your fire, curl up, and enjoy this traditional Baked Rice Pudding. Serve with a good lashing of pouring custard.
1/2 cup cooked jasmine rice
2 generous tbsp sugar
700mL milk, skim or full cream
1 generous tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tbsp butter
sprinkle of nutmeg
Heat oven to 180 degrees (fan-forced) and get out a square baking dish or flan dish. Beat eggs in a large bowl and add in sugar; beat again to combine. Pour in milk and vanilla extract; stir together. Add in rice; stir. Pour into dish and place small knobs of butter on top of the mixture. Sprinkle with some nutmeg. Place in oven for about 1 hour, or until golden and brown. Serve hot or cold with custard.
