An old fashioned creamy baked rice pudding using left over rice, just like Mum used to make.
When I was growing up Mum worked shift work and often on the weekends. So in our house the traditional Sunday roast could in fact turn up on the menu as a weekday dinner.
Walking through the front door after school to the aroma of slow roasted lamb meant not only a delicious roast dinner with crispy roast potatoes, home made gravy and vinegary mint sauce. It also meant a baked pudding. A golden crusted, custardy pudding made from stale bread or left over rice always accompanied my Mum’s lamb roast.
This is my version of Baked Rice Pudding. I’ve added a hint of orange zest for a little bit of zing. The combination of cinnamon and orange zest takes this from a boring ol’ baked rice pudding to something truly special.
Serve with an orange sugar cream for an amazing dessert that will remind you of Mum’s cooking.
