English Rice Pudding
English rice pudding is a favourite all over the world and doesn’t have a specific place of origin. In some way seeing pictures of English Rice Pudding, it makes me think of one of my favourite childhood Sunday Lunch puddings namely Sago or Tapioka pudding. English Rice pudding is a lovely creamy dessert, and with the vanilla and lemon rind added into the pudding, it is really a creamy, soft and sensational pudding. The key element in this pudding is to use short grain rice such as Arborio rice.This rice makes a thick, sticky pudding. It gives a smooth, tender result and using milk and cream together makes this a luscious pudding. Serving rice pudding in beautiful see-through glass types make it also visually very beautifully, not to mention adding cinnamon sticks if using ground cinnamon on top! Some recipes serve this delicious rice pudding with a dollop of strawberry jam, others sprinkle it with raisins. For a coconut flavoured version you can substitute the milk with coconut milk. To serve you can add cold almond milk on top with coconut shavings. Add fresh blueberries for a lovely colour and a purple type of eatable flower such as pansies. If you like this dessert you will problably love Bread and Butter Pudding.
