Comfort – Slow Cooker Rice Pudding

5 of 366

We’ve both been really under the weather this week; Mike’s had the flu, and I’ve had a strange rash thing that we still don’t have a diagnosis for. As well as the itching, I’ve been pretty knocked out by a course of antibiotics.

Without the little benefit of having someone to look after me, I’ve not had chance for any special comfort foods. But I have been a bit more up and about today, and I’ve thrown a rice pudding into the slow cooker (I think that’s the same as a crockpot for our American cousins).

It’s so simple and takes no bother at all.

 

Recipe for Crockpot / Slowcooker Rice Pudding

 

Serves 4

5 minutes prep time

4 hours cooking time

 

Ingredients

100g Short Grain / Pudding Rice

100g Sugar (If I have it in, I use about 50g light brown sugar along with 50g caster sugar)

2 pints milk

25g butter

 

Method

Use the butter to grease the pot lightly.

Throw the rest of the butter in the pot with the rice and milk.

Give it a stir and put on low.

After a couple of hours, stir the sugar in.

Leave on low for another two and a half hours.

 

It doesn’t need anything with it – I always have mine plain – but a spoonful of jam adds extra flavour.
