    • 1 litre of whole milk
    • 150ml double cream
    • 75g caster sugar
    • 100g pudding rice or paella rice
    • 40g unsalted butter
    • 1 stick of cinnamon
    • A pinch of salt
    • Peel of one lemon
    • Cinnamon powder for dusting
    • For the caramelised peaches:
    • 4 whole peaches, not too ripe
    • 100g caster sugar


    Arroz con leche is the Spanish version of a rice pudding. In Spain, rice pudding tends to be served cold but I prefer it baked and served at room temperature. A well-made rice pudding can be a great dessert but be careful not to overcook it or you will end up with mushy sweet rice. In this recipe, I serve the rice pudding with roasted peaches cooked in sugar caramel. Make sure you drizzle the caramel sauce on the creamy rice pudding.


    1. Preheat the oven to 140°C/285°F/Gas Mark 1.
    2. In a medium size sauce pan, bring the milk and cream to the boil with the pinch of salt, cinnamon stick and lemon peel. Once the mix starts to boil, turn the heat off.
    3. Melt the butter in a heavy-based casserole dish over a medium heat. Add the rice and stir to coat. Add the sugar, stirring until dissolved. Continue stirring until the rice swells and becomes sticky with sugar. Pour in the milk and cream mixture and stir until no lumps remain. Bake for 1-1½ hours and cover with foil if the surface browns too quickly. Once there is a thin skin on the surface, and the pudding only just wobbles in the centre, it is ready. Allow the rice pudding to cool down to room temperature.
    4. While the rice is cooking, peel the peaches, cut them in half and remove the stone. Melt the caster sugar in a medium size frying pan, once the sugar has dissolved and begins to turn amber in colour, add the peaches and toss them in the caramel. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, turning them in between so both sides caramelise.
    5. Serve the rice pudding with a dusting of cinnamon powder, two caramelised peaches and a drizzle of caramel.
