If you like the rice pudding runny, check after 1 hour, if you like the pudding stiffer, and thicker, 1 1/2 - 2 hours and it will be very thick. If you end up with your rice pudding too thick, add some milk heated through from the microwave and it will go loose again.
Delicious with Strawberry Jam. I like to eat mine cold too. Set in a bowl in the fridge overnight. When you bake it in the oven a skin will form on the top. If you don't like this, just remove it. But it does taste delicious.
Dutch Apple Pudding with Butterscotch Sauce, this is a delicious dessert, wonderful served warm. Lovely chunks of apple, laced with cinnamon and then served with a drizzle of warm butterscotch sauce. So Yummy!
Blueberry Ripple Bread and Butter Pudding, a super easy dessert, a warm fruit breakfast casserole with blueberries and bread baked in a creamy sweet custard. Absolutely delicious served warm with a blob of ice cream, whipped cream, or both!
Brown Sugar Bread Pudding is a classic dessert and very flexible with add ons such as nuts, dried fruits, or just keep it simple. That addition of the brown sugar makes this out of this world! Freezer friendly too!
