Rice Pudding Recipe: How to Make it in a Slow Cooker
Ahhhh, this rice pudding recipe takes me back to my childhood.
Now though, it is a great addition to my “must try more” desserts. A bit l like cheesecake – you can never have enough of it!
Complimented with various fruit toppings or a simply spoonful of jam, rice pudding is a true comfort food anytime of the year.
My Dad, being the cultured person he is, would quite often break up a shortbread biscuit and scatter it over the rice pudding!
There are numerous rice pudding recipes and experimenting with a few variations will help you find the perfect one for you, whether it is a bake-in-the-oven, saucepan or in a slow cooker recipe.
For this version I am making it in a slow cooker as it is a very simple process, also it’s not too sweet so you can add jam when decorating if you prefer a sweeter rice pudding.
