The original recipe is from Donna Hay Modern Classics:2. I have tweaked a little, see what you think. Perfect for cold winter nights.
- 1 cup full cream whole milk
- ½ cup double cream
- 2 eggs
- 2 egg yolks, extra
- ½ cup caster sugar
- ¾ teaspoons vanilla bean paste
- 1 cup cooked rice, separated with a fork
- 2 tablespoons sultanas
1.Preheat the oven to 150 degrees celsius.
2.Place the milk and cream in a saucepan over medium heat and heat until hot but not boiling.
3.Place the eggs, egg yolks, sugar and vanilla in a bowl until well combined. slowly pour over the hot milk mixture, whisking well to combine.
4.Grease a 2 litre capacity pudding basin/casserole dish. Spread rice and sultanas evenly in the base of the dish.
5.Pour the mixture into the dish through a strainer.
6.Place in a baking tray and pour in enough hot water to come halfway up the side of the dish.
7.Bake for 50 minutes or until just set. serve warm or cold
If you are not keen on the slightly grainy texture that you get from vanilla been paste, you can substitute 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.
