Serves: 4 ramekins
  • ½ cup white rice (short or long grain)
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 125 ml cream
  • 375 ml milk
  • Rind of ½ lemon
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • nutmeg or cinnamon to decorate
  1. Combine milk, sugar and cream together with a cinnamon stick and big chunks of zest of ½ lemon (as you will be taking the zest out before serving don't make the pieces too small).
  2. Simmer very gently until the sugar has dissolved.
  3. Add the rice and continue simmering at the lowest possible heat for about 15/20 minutes until the rice is cooked and the cream/milk is almost all absorbed.
  4. Take the zest and cinnamon stick out, and serve in your favourite little jars, or ramekins.
  5. Sprinkle with nutmeg or cinnamon and serve as is or with fruit of your choice.
  6. If you prefer this is also delicious cold or room temperature.
