Maple Rice Pudding

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups of rice

2 1/2 cups of milk

1 cup maple syrup

1 cup raisins or sultanas

3 eggs

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Butter to grease pudding dish

 

Method:

  1. Grease an oven-proof pudding dish with the butter.
  2. Place the rice and milk in a large pot.  Stir well.
  3. In a small bowl, beat the eggs and maple syrup together.  Fold into the rice mixture.
  4. Stir in all the other ingredients.
  5. Pour in the buttered pudding dish.  Cover with a tight lid.
  6. Carefully place over a pan of boiling water (or use a stove-top double boiler).
  7. Cook for approximately 1 hour, replenishing the water at frequent intervals so the pan does not boil dry.
  8. Stir occasionally to prevent the rice from sticking on the bottom.
  9. Serve with cream if desired.
