Signature dish

Everyone needs a signature dish! Even people who are very tiny still. Becksie was always involved in cooking from a young age and so she was keen that Lizzie joined in as soon as she was able.

So….. we give you Lizzie Pugh’s current signature dish – Rice Pudding! Lizzie its over to you…….

rice pud 4I have now made this dish all by my own a few times now and it really is easy and tasty! The only bit I will let mummy help with is the putting it in the oven bit, the getting it out bit and….. the eating bit!

I was just considering adding currants but decided against it this time although a handful work a treat

Get all your ingredients out, mine live in the pantry which is just across the kitchen from my me-sized kitchen counter. I gather pudding rice, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg from the pantry, then milk and cream from the fridge and a bowl from the cupboard.

rice pud 3So for the three of us I use the amount of rice I can pour in the time my mummy can say ‘peppa pig’ ‘peppa pig’. I then add as much sugar as I can in the time mummy can say ‘george’. I then mix it up!

rice pud 2Take your milk and add until the rice is covered and then a good few centimetres. Add a glug of cream and a generous sprinkling of nutmeg and cinnamon. Mix it up!

Serve to mummy and daddy with a spoon of my mummy’s blackcurrant jam? Lovely as we are now in Autumn.

  1. What a clever girl Lizzie is, and what a wonderful mummy she has who lets her cook! Love it that you don’t stop her because ” it might be messy” ! I’m glad you put “doing things” before being clean and neat and perfect!

  2. Lizzie you are such a clever little girl …and your Mummy is a clever big girl cooking up special memories together she knows is more important than a little bit of “mess” xx
