I am not normally a fan of rice pudding but today for some reason I thought I'd try it....I'd always liked it when I was a small child. I decided to give your recipe a try. The only thing I did different was to use maple extract instead of vanilla because I was out and I used skim milk because I am trying to watch the fat. It turned out delicious!! Way better than I anticipated! Thank You!!

I put in the two cups of water and started cooking but decided that it looked like too much water so removed half of it. I then followed the receipe (only omitting the egg too, I didnt' fancy it). I think though, it probably did need the full two cups of water (sorry for doubting you Shmo) as it was a bit glutinous and the rice could have done with a bit more cooking. Flavour was perfect (I also omitted the cinnamon but added nutmeg cos I prefer it). Will try again following the receipe properly. Thank you for submitting this stovetop rice pud.
