I have wanted a slow cooker for years as my mum has always raved about them and was lucky enough to get one for Christmas. So I christened it this week and made a rice pudding. I decided to go for something simple to start with ... and it was really simple!
Ingredients:110g (4oz) pudding rice
55g (2oz) sugar, granulated or caster
25g (1oz) margarine
1.2l (2 pints) milk, whole, semi skimmed or skimmed
1/2 tsp cinnamon or 1 tsp vanilla essence
Put all the ingredients into the slow cooker and stir.
Put onto high and cover.
After an hour stir again and leave for another 3 to 3 1/2 hours.
Serve with a little jam, syrup or honey or on its own.
It turned out very yummy and I am looking forward to trying out some other slow cooker recipes!
