Welcome to the Friday Club Carnival, a weekly carnival held here. This week’s Carnival is all about one-pot cooking and you’ll find links to other great recipes at the bottom of this post.
I love this recipe because it’s quick to prepare, the children love it (tip: introduce this early on in the weaning stage so they grow up liking it) and it’s inexpensive. The downsides are that it takes a while to cook so you have to prepare it earlier than the rest of the meal and the dish needs a good soak before it will clean easily. Scroll down to the end for the full recipe.
Grease a large ovenproof dish, I use a 9 inch square one but pretty much any dish will do.
Add the pudding rice
and spread it on the bottom of the dish.
Add the sugar
then add your butter or margarine.
Add the milk and give it all a good stir.
Put in the oven at 150 degrees Celsius for about two and a half hours. Every half hour or so, give it a stir and add more milk or some water if it looks like it is getting a bit dry.
Serve it with jam
and tuck in.
Tip: if you have cooked this for your baby and he/she likes it, you may find that you can disguise other foods in it. Here’s Edward as a baby eating his roast meal (something he hated) in his dessert. It doesn’t look very appetising but he ate the lot and then came back for more!
Recipe – makes 6 portions
200g pudding rice
50g sugar (you can use less sugar if you want to, especially if you are serving it with jam)
tablespoon of butter or margarine
1.50 litres milk (approximately 2.5 UK pints or 5 cups). You may need a bit of extra milk (or you can use water) to add to the dish while it is cooking.
Grease a 9inch ovenproof dish. Add the pudding rice, sugar, butter and the milk. Stir it gently and put in the centre of a pre-heated oven at 150 degree Celsius for approximately two and a half hours. Stir regularly and add more milk (or water) if it looks like it is getting a bit dry. Serve with jam.
