Creamy Rice Pudding with Brulee Topping and Compote of Apple and Rhubarb

Posted 2015-07-25 by finyfollow

Creamy rice pudding is so easy to eat even after a main meal -it is quite rich and the brulee on the top gives the creamy rice a crunchy taste.

Added to this is the compote of rhubarb and apple which is slightly sour and enhances the taste of the sweet rice pudding.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes plus refrigeration time
Cooking Time: 55 minutes
Makes: 8 servings

1½ cups white rice
3 cups hot milk
1 cup pouring cream
250 g caster sugar
20 g unsalted butter
3 egg yolks (or 2 large ones)
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp vanilla
2 apples
Bit of sugar to sweeten
Flaked almonds for topping -optional

For the compote
  • Cut the apples and rhubarb (you can use any fruit), add a tiny bit of water, and a bit of coconut sugar, or similar.

  • Cook for about 10 - 15 minutes, or until the fruit is soft.
  • Cooked compote, cooling

    For the rice pudding
  • Boil 1 litre of water in a large saucepan and add the rice and a pinch of salt.

  • Cook, stirring occasionally over a low heat for about 10 minutes or until the water is absorbed.

  • Add the remaining milk half a cup at a time and heating it in the microwave before adding each cup.

  • Stir occasionally over a very low heat until the milk is absorbed each time.

  • Heat the cream, add it and ¾ cup of the sugar only.

  • Add the egg yolks, butter, cinnamon and vanilla, and continue stirring occasionally to make sure it does not stick to the pot.

  • This should take about 10 minutes, or cook till mixture appears creamy -do not allow it to boil. It will no longer absorb all the liquid however this will set as it cools.

  • Put it into an 8 cup flameproof dish, allow to cool, cover and put in the fridge until cold.

  • Sprinkle the remaining sugar evenly over the top of the rice pudding and put it under a hot grill until caramelised.

  • The time will vary according to your grill heat but it should be as high as possible.

  • Serve.

  • Add the compote on the side and sprinkle with the almonds if using.

  • Delicious, and a lovely end to a meal.
