Ingredients

  • 500ml whole milk
  • 500ml double cream
  • 50g caster sugar, plus 2-3 tbsp extra for sprinkling
  • 180g pudding rice
  • 1 vanilla pod, split lengthways, seeds scraped
  • Golden syrup to serve

Method

  1. Put the milk, cream and sugar in a shallow casserole (one you’re happy to take to the table) and stir over a low heat until combined and the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Turn up the heat and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Stir in the rice, vanilla seeds and pod, and simmer very gently for 45 minutes or until the rice swells and is tender – stir every once in a while to prevent the rice from catching on the bottom of the pan.
  3. Heat the grill to medium high. Sprinkle the 2-3 tbsp caster sugar over the top of the pudding, then grill until golden and bubbling. Serve warm, drizzled with golden syrup.

  1. Any leftovers will keep for 2-3 days in a sealed container in the fridge – just make sure you cool and chill the pudding quickly. To serve, reheat until piping hot or serve cold with jam.
