One of the things I’m enjoying about weaning Ben is rediscovering “nursery food;” plain, traditional fare which is instantly comforting. It’s also usually calorific, heavy on the milk and often containing nutmeg, which is said to aid sleep. I was eating a Muller Rice the other day, and gave Ben a taste. He loved it, and I thought I should really make a proper rice pudding. Then I discovered I could make rice pudding in the slow cooker. Genius.
This does make really lovely rice pudding. The only problem with this recipe is that it was really difficult to clean the slow cooker.
- 100g pudding rice
- 600ml milk
- 3 tbsp sugar
- Place the rice, milk and sugar in the slow cooker and stir.
- Grate the nutmeg over the top of the milk.
- Cook on High for 3-4 hours.
