Rice Pudding… well worth the wait.

What is it about Rice Pudding that makes it so good? After all it is only rice cooked in milk and sugar, but since I was a child this easy dish has always ranked as one of my favourite desserts. Yet until recently I have never tried making it; for some reason I thought it was a complicated dish to make, now that I have given it a try though, I don’t think I will ever open a tin again!

A bit of advanced warning before you rush off to make this delicious dish though; it does take quite awhile to bake in the oven, so this is a dish probably best made on the weekends or while waiting in for a delivery, or just on a lazy afternoon when you have a couple of hours to waste.
