Microwave Rice Pudding

    25 minutes

    I'm not a big fan of the microwave but it is useful for some things plus it keeps the heat down in the kitchen. This is good for leftover rice but if you need to cook some just for this - start with about 1/2 cup of raw rice.

    Needed a bit longer to cook in my microwave.  -  17 Sep 2011


    Not sure why the egg is needed in this recipe, first time around I cooked it as suggested and the egg scrambled, second time around left the egg out and it was ok, but rice was still very undercooked and i ended up adding another 2 cups of milk and finishing it off on the stove. Its also very sweet and the sugar could be halved.  -  04 Jun 2013


    This recipe doesn't work, I added a load more rice, sieved it as it still wouldn't work, then put it in the oven!  -  25 Oct 2015  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
