Sometimes, when the skies are grey outside and you’re not feeling your best, the best thing for you is some good old fashioned home cooked comfort food and the best comfort food I know is our gorgeous slow cooker rice pudding! Yesterday afternoon was one of those afternoons where comfort food was called for but seeing as I wasn’t feeling great, I called on Master Frugal to take over the kitchen and make us a batch.
Slow cooker rice pudding really is easy to make yet it tastes so delicious and always makes me feel better. I make it with milk or occasionally if I have some in the house, I’ll use a mix of double cream and milk which makes it even creamier and if you add a dollop of Nutella or cherry jam then everything is right with the world again – even if it’s just while I’m eating it. 😉
Slow cooker rice pudding
110g pudding rice
2 pints of milk (or a mix of cream and milk)
(Optional) Ground cinnamon, nutmeg or vanilla pods/extract depending on what flavour you fancy.
- Grease the bottom and part way up the sides of your slow cooker bowl with some of the butter and then pour in the milk, followed by the rest of the ingredients.
- Cook on full power for 3.5 – 4 hours or until the milk is mostly absorbed into the rice. You need to stir the rice pudding half way through as it can stick to the sides of the slow cooker quite easily.
Seriously, the recipe couldn’t be easier – the hardest thing about this is waiting for it to cook when you can smell it’s amazing delicious-ness the whole time!
Master Frugal did a great job last night and even though I wasn’t feeling too good, I thoroughly enjoyed my bowl of creamy slow cooker Rice Pudding followed by a lovely soak in a Badedas bubble bath!
