Maple Rice Pudding


Author Notes: My mother has made a traditional English version of this since I can remember. She used whole milk instead of 1/2 &1/2. I altered the recipe to include the cream and maple syrup instead of white sugar, and the optional dried fruit and nuts. soupcon

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup rice

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350*F. Combine all ingredients in shallow baking dish. Bake for 50 minutes stirring at the end of the first 25 minutes. Stir in any skin that may have formed. Stir again and continue baking stirring occasionally watching closely until the mixture begins to thicken. Remove from oven and allow to cool. The pudding will continue to thicken as it cools. The dried fruit can be added before cooking in which case you may have to increase the amount of 1/2 & 1/2 to accommodate the plumping of the fruit. Add toasted nuts as a garnish.
