  • Bake for a further 2 hours 10 minutes - the top should be golden brown. Allow to cool a little before serving.


A total baking time of 2 hours 20 minutes should provide a medium thick rice pudding. It will still have a little bit of liquid milk when you remove it from the oven, but this will thicken a little as it cools. If you prefer it a little milkier, bake for 10-15 minutes less, if you prefer it super thick, bake for 10-15 minutes more.
If you cannot obtain pudding rice, any short grain rice, including Arborio or paella rice, could be used as a substitute.
