This classic ‘nursery’ pudding is so comforting and is easy to make. It is an ideal pudding to make in your Aga range cooker. After a short blast in the roasting oven, you move it into the simmering oven and can ‘forget’ about it for several hours whilst you prepare the main course/do the school run/put your feet up! I like to leave the vanilla pod in the pudding as it cooks for extra flavour, but do remember to remove it before serving.

Tip top toppings! -
This rice pudding is delicious as it is but a dollop of your favourite jam is always a welcome addition. Raspberry jam for me please!
Other ideas for toppings:
You can also add flavours other than vanilla and nutmeg to the rice pudding whilst it is baking – those rum or sherry-soaked raisins would make a very special dessert. A little lemon zest is good or try cinnamon in place of the nutmeg. Chocolate chips are an indulgent option for the chocoholic!
Antonia's tips for cooking this in your Aga range cooker -
Antonia likes her rice pudding to be quite firm with a wobbly, rather than runny consistency. If you like it to be more runny, check after 2 hours in the simmering oven.
You can cook most rice dishes in the simmering oven, using the absorption method. For perfect long-grain rice, use twice the volume of liquid to rice, bring to the boil on the boiling plate and then place a lid firmly on the saucepan and finish cooking on the floor of the simmering oven.
