White Chocolate Rice Pudding with a Cherry & Rhubarb Compote

White Chocolate Rice Pudding with a Cherry & Rhubarb Compote

This recipe was one that Lisa created, for she tried some rice pudding that she bought from a supermarket, and simply wasn’t impressed! She has a great love for white chocolate, so decided to incorporate this into a homemade rice pudding; and add a fruity topping to balance the sweetness with a sharper, tart fruity taste. It’s a great little pud to share with friends and family, perhaps after a light meal – and it’s perfect for colder nights when you are curled up on the sofa.

White Chocolate Rice Pudding with a Cherry & Rhubarb Compote Recipe

MAKES 6-10 BOWLS // TIME: 1 HOUR // EASY

Ingredients

Compote:

  • 3 Large Oranges
  • 30ml Water
  • 100g Caster Sugar
  • 200g Rhubarb (Cleaned and Chopped)
  • 200g Cherries (Pitted and Chopped)

Rice Pudding:

  • 500ml Whole Milk
  • 160ml Double Cream
  • 60g Caster Sugar
  • 150g Arborio Rice
  • 110g White Chocolate (Finely Chopped)

 

Method

  • For the fruit compote, squeeze the juice from the oranges into a pan. Add in the water, sugar, cherries and rhubarb. Turn the heat to medium, and continually stir for around 5 minutes. Then turn the heat to low, and allow the mixture to simmer for around 5-10 minutes, until a compote texture forms and the fruit is soft. Pop to one side until you are ready to serve.
  • Begin making the rice pudding by adding the rice, milk, cream and sugar to a pan. Stir together and bring the mixture to a boil. Then, lower the heat and allow the mixture to simmer for around 40 minutes, until thick and creamy and the rice is cooked.
  • Remove the pan from the heat, and add in the white chocolate. Stir until the chocolate melts, then pop a lid on the pan and leave for 5-10 minutes in it’s own steam (not on the heat).  Divide the rice pudding into small bowls, and serve with a spoonful of compote on top!
