I have a backlog of recipe posts that I'm finally getting around to :)
Nigel Slater calls this pudding "as comforting as an old teddy bear." Awww. How could I resist this pudding with a description like that?
Lovely to follow a Sunday roast with, or as a pseudo-breakfast if you're carb loading for a long run!
Apple, cinnamon & maple syrup rice pudding
Inspired by Nigel Slater's recipe in Tender II: Fruit
150g pudding rice
500ml oat milk (or any milk you fancy - obviously if you use full cream milk it will be creamier!)
As much ground cinnamon as you like
A large apple (you could use 2 if you want lots of apple)
3 tablespoons caster sugar (could leave this out if you like)
Maple syrup, to serve
Greek yoghurt or creme fraiche, to serve (optional)
Put the rice in a small pan and cover with the water. Bring to the boil, and then reduce the heat and simmer until the water has almost entirely evaporated. You will need to watch it so it doesn't dry out and burn!
Pour in the milk, bring back to the boil, then turn down the heat again and cover and simmer for about fifteen minutes, returning regularly to stir it. It should be very creamy and the rice cooked through. Stir in the cinnamon. Grate the apple, then stir it into the rice, together with the sugar. Leave for about five minutes. Serve, pouring maple syrup over the top, and a dollop of Greek yoghurt or creme fraiche if you like.
