Rice pudding is one of the classic comfort food puds. Although you can buy it in cans and cartons there is nothing quite like a homemade baked creamy rice pudding with a gorgeous golden buttery skin. It takes no effort at all but needs a couple of hours cooking so its one to pop in the oven at the same time as cooking a casserole or roast. You can speed up the cooking time by cooking it on the hob but it tastes much nicer when baked. Pudding rice is a short grain rice which swells and becomes sticky when cooked given a lovely creamy texture to the pudding.


  • 600ml full-fat milk
  • 3tbsp short grain pudding rice
  • 2tbsp caster sugar
  • Knob of butter
  • Freshly grated nutmeg

For a fruity pudding add 50g dried fruit and the finely grated zest of 1 orange before baking.


  1. Preheat the oven to 150C/300F/Gas Mark 2. Pour the milk into a pan and heat to just below boiling. While the milk is heating, place the rice and sugar in a 900ml baking dish.
  2. Pour the hot milk over the rice and sugar and stir to mix. Add the knob of butter and grate a little nutmeg over the top.
  3. Bake for about 2 hrs, stirring after about 30 mins, until the rice is cooked and the pudding has a golden skin on the top. Serve warm on its own or with fresh fruit, stewed fruit or jam.
