This delicious rice pudding recipe is a great winter warmer.


  • 1.5 litres milk

  • ¾ cup sugar

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cinnamon quill

  • Zest of one lemon (or zest of one orange)

  • 200g risotto rice (or other short grain variety)

  • Handful of sultanas


  • 1.

    Place a large saucepan over medium heat and add milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and lemon zest. Stir regularly and allow to come to the boil slowly.

  • 2.

    When the milk has just boiled turn the heat down to low and add the rice and the sultanas.

  • 3.

    Continue to stir occasionally and allow the rice to cook really slowly for 40 minutes, or until the rice is tender. You can add plain milk if the infused mixture runs out before the rice is cooked.

  • 4.

    Remove from heat and serve garnished with a little fruit.
