Jammy rice pudding recipe is the perfect treat for those colder months and is just like they used to make for school dinners, so it’s a taste of nostalgia too. This easy recipe is a delicious twist on the classic, with homemade jam sauce made from fresh blackberries. The rice pudding is made from full fat milk, making it extra creamy. This recipes serves 6 people and is ready in 30 mins.


  • 1.2 litres full-fat milk
  • 1 vanilla pod, split lengthways and the seeds scraped out
  • 120g short-grain pudding rice
  • 4tbsp caster sugar
  • For the jammy sauce:
  • 300g blackberries
  • 4tbsp caster sugar


  • To make the rice pudding, pour the milk into a large, heavy-based pan, then add the vanilla pod and seeds, rice and sugar. Heat gently and bring to the boil, then leave to simmer, uncovered, for 30-35 mins, stirring occasionally, until the rice grains are cooked through, the milk is almost absorbed and the texture is creamy.

  • To make the jammy sauce, put the blackberries and caster sugar in a pan, and cook over a gentle heat for about 5 mins to dissolve the sugar and soften the fruit a little.

  • Using a slotted spoon, take the fruit out of the pan and put into a dish. Bring the liquid to the boil for a few mins to reduce it and make it more syrupy, then add back the fruit. To serve, divide the rice pud between 6 bowls with a good dollop of the jam.
