Rice Pudding An Old Favourite…With A Twist!

Rice Pudding An Old Favourite…With A Twist!

Rice pudding is a dessert that takes me back to my childhood, my mum would make it quite a lot and it was one of her cravings when she was pregnant with my brother. Whilst a lovely creamy rice pudding that melts in your mouth is delicious, it’s also really easy to add some ingredients and have your own twist on it.

Naughty But Rice small pots of rice pudding desserts are available in three flavours, Coconut & Raspberry, Chocolate Orange and Salted Caramel and can be served hot or cold. To warm them up just pop them in the microwave. We tried the salted caramel pots and chocolate orange ones, they were delicious and creamy. You can buy Naughty But Rice in Sainsburys, Ocacdo, Booths, Spar and Iceland RRP £1 per pot.


Naughty but Rice have set me a Rice Challenge to come up with my own twist on rice pudding. My first job was to make the rice pudding, which is really easy to make, but you have to be careful not to over cook it and the tricky part is getting the right consistency.

I had a little helper too, first the job of weighing it all out.

Then stirring the milk through.


Once it was ready, it was time to add our twists to it. We did three different flavours…

Strawberry and Coconut – We sprinkled the top with coconut and added a dollop of strawberry jam on top.


Chocolate and Honey – We mixed some honey into the rice pudding to add a lovely sweet taste and then grated some chocolate on top.


Maple Syrup and Nutmeg – We mixed the maple syrup through the rice pudding and sprinkled some nutmeg on top, nutmeg is a real traditional addition to rice pudding.


That is our rice challenge complete…What do you think?

Here is the ingredients and method to make rice pudding if you fancy having a go:


  • 100g Pudding Rice
  • 50g Sugar
  • 700ml semi-skimmed milk


  • Heat the oven to 150 degrees or gas mark 2
  • Wash the rice and drain
  • Buter a 850ml heatproof baking dish, then tip in the rice and sugar and stir through the milk
  • Cook for 2 hours or until the pudding wobbles when slightly shaken. It will bubble up when cooking, give it a stir a few times while cooking


Disclosure: I was sent the ingredients to take part in the Naughty But Rice rice pudding challenge and make my own flavour of rice pudding. All views and opinions are my own.
