To kick off my Speedy Cooking with the Pressure Cooker challenge, I thought I’d start off with a dessert, coz everyone LOVES a dessert – and it’s a bonus when you can throw some stuff in a pot, and VOILA, not 40 minutes later it is cooked to perfection.
I had a whole whizz-bang post all written up – it was funny, witty, entertaining and just ACE – but somehow it vanished – POOF! Bugger. Instead of trying to be funny again (it never works the second time around), I’ll just give you the recipe straight up, and you can pretend you are reading witty literature!
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- 2 rice ups (the special rice measuring cup that comes with the Pressure Cooker) or white rice
- ⅓ cup caster sugar
- 1½ cups water (use boiling water if your want to decrease the amount of time it takes for the pressure to build up)
- 2 cups milk
- 1 egg (thanks to our chooks - it was a nice juicy one!)
- ¼ cup condensed milk
- 1 tsp (or so) vanilla extract
- Stir rice and melted butter together in Pressure Cooked bowl, until rice is coated in butter
- Whisk together the sugar, water, milk, egg and condensed milk in a large jug, then pour over rice
- Stir through the vanilla extract
- Place lid and seal on the Pressure Cooker, ensuring release valve is in the sealed position
- Select the WHITE RICE (14 minutes) function and the press START button
- The cooker will heat up until under pressure, at which point the timer will start to count down and magic happens
- Once the timer goes off, either release the pressure manually if you are in a rush, or let it release automagically if you are happy to wait. I let it release automagically, and the Wilma kept it warm until we were ready to eat. She can keep things warm for up to four hours!
- Serve topped with bananas, frozen raspberries or some chocolate if you are feeling decadent!
Yes – I kow – it’s not exactly paleo – but it was fast, warm, and filling for my tribe of bottomless pits!
I must day – this Pressure Cooker gadget is a bit of a breeze to use – certainly not scary!
Stay tuned for the next post in this series – Casseroley poley……
