Made for the Aug Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap, I chose this recipe for its simplicity & because I am esp fond of rice custard or pudding. I made it as written, but did have to add 2 tbsp extra water in the final cooking stage w/the raisins. It is very ingredient + prep-friendly & would be an excellent snack or after-school treat for children, but IMO needed another flavour dimension to meet my taste pref. Vanilla or cinnamon might work well, but I opted to rely on nutmeg & it was delicious w/it! The recipe yielded 6 generous ramekin servings that I served w/cream (as suggested) & also w/whipped cream. Either cream or whipped cream is a must here as the dessert will be dry w/o them. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
