Rice Pudding and tennis

So then, out of the British tennis players, only Andy Murray, Dan Evans and Johanna Konta are still in the Australian Open. Novak was knocked out today so who knows how the rest of the tournament will pan out.

I have never used my slow cooker to make rice pudding but yesterday I did. The rice was quite old but edible and I certainly wasn't going to throw it away.

Measurements were: 300g dry weight of pudding rice, 2 small cans of evaporated milk plus normal milk to make up 1.5 litres and 4 level tablespoons of sugar, plus a good grating of nutmeg. I think it was cooked on high for 3 - 4 hours (mainly because I forgot about it after stirring it twice!

The pudding was then decanted into bowls:
The 4 ramekins were covered and frozen for other days. We had one each of the two small bowls at room temperature for pudding last night. The 2 bigger cereal bowls we shall warm for tonight.

I did make a mistake and that was to stop cooking it whilst it still had enough milk. As it cooled, the rice absorbed the last of the milk turning it into a 'stick to the ribs' pudding but it was still enjoyed!

  1. O always make my milk puddings in the slow cooker and you are right about turning off before all the milk is absorbed. I once had to slice a rice pudding into bars because i left it too long!

    1. I lightly greased it to help stop the rice sticking and stirred it every hour.

  3. I always make my rice pudding in the slow cooker. I've had a few that have been of the stick to the ribs variety!

  4. Recorded the tennis overnight so I could watch it this morning. Quite a shock to see Novak go out although a lot of the time he didn't seem to be into it. Roanic is doing well but he's sick so we'll have to wait and see. My favourite is Nadal so I hope he continues to do well. Your rice pudding looks very yummy. I've just finished making two BIG pots of ham and split pea soup. My GD will get most of it because she loves it and would eat it every day. She even brought me the empty containers this time!!!!
