Baked Custard and Rice Pudding with Soul-Warming Pineapple Jam and Milk Tart Yoghurt

by Kyla Van Heerden

This is our version of ‘impossible pie’. The rice falls through the custard while cooking, creating layers
of sweetened rice and custard. It’s delicious served warm in winter or cold in the summertime.
