Rice pudding


There’s no pudding rice in Italy, but Arborio is a great substitute with its starchy covering that makes risottos, and this pudding, even more creamy. I like my pudding with raisins in it, rather than adding jam or golden syrup afterwards, so that you get little bursts of fresh-tasting warm fruit to go with the unctuous rice. Really, the recipe depends on your container and what you have available – add as much or as little cream, double cream, milk and butter as you dare. This version came out fairly stiff, so next time I would experiment with adding more milk to rice to get more creaminess.

Butter an ovenproof dish. Add the rice, sugar and raisins, pour in milk and grate nutmeg on top. Bake for 2 hours at 150°C, stirring after the first 30 minutes and the first hour.
