Place the milk, cream, sugar, vanilla pod and cinnamon into a heavy based saucepan, bring to the boil then add the pudding rice and stir well. Leave this to simmer for a good 30-40 min, stirring frequently until the rice is soft.

Whilst this is cooking, to make the boozy pears simply peel, deseed and dice the pears, then sauté them with a nob of butter, the sugar, a splash of brandy or calvados and lashings of grated nutmeg or to your preferred taste.

To dish up… remove the vanilla pod and cinnamon stick (if used) and place a good helping into a bowl or large ramekin and sprinkle with sugar.

If you happen to have a blowtorch to hand (in your kitchen!) caramelise the top. If not, this can be done under the grill, but please be careful when handling. Leave to settle for a couple of minutes then place the boozy pears on top.
