Chocolate rice pudding

Looking at my statistics, I’ve found a lot of people find my site looking for chocolate rice pudding. Because of this, I’ve decided to post my recipe, which I got out of a Sainsbury’s magazine. I’ve mentioned before that the recipe is from Nigella Lawson, and it’s also been published in her book, Feast, but for a much larger crowd.

I find this a really easy, gorgeous recipe. Nigella gives specific instructions on how to mix everything, but I tend to just throw everything together in a casserole dish and stick it in the oven. I find it to be quite liquidy, so I also end up cooking it for longer than she calls for, stirring it every half hour or so. I don’t know if it turns out right, but Paul likes it, so why change things now?

When I gave the recipe to my mom, it was in British style, meaning you have to get out the scales, which I don’t find that difficult or off putting anymore. However, because I suspect my mother hasn’t made it yet because of the British measurements and funny oven temperatures, I’ve tried to convert these. It’s all a bit hodgepodge, but I don’t think this pudding is a science. It tastes good, and that’s about it.

Chocolate Rice Pudding

3 tbsp cocoa

4 tbsp boiling water

1 tbsp vanilla extract

125 grams (about 1 1/2 cups) of arborio or pudding rice

100 grams (about 1/2 cup) sugar

1 litre (1 3/4 pints) (about 4 cups) milk

1 1/2 litre (2 1/2 pint) baking dish

Heat your oven to 150 C (300 F)

Dissolve the cocoa and water, and then stir in the milk. Add the vanilla extract, and pour this mixture into your baking dish. Then add the rice and sugar to the dish and stir together. Put this all into the over and bake for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.

And that’s it! Enjoy!
