This pudding is a winner! I have looked at this recipe about 15 times before I finally decided to just go for it. I am so glad I did. It is very simple to make, even the vanilla bean part. It's like a nice rice pudding, with a bit more texture - which we all loved. It's not as mushy as they can be. I used craisins in place of the cherries. I think this would be even more yummy using some whipping cream for the milk if you have it. Made and Reviewed for Please Review My Recipe Tag - Thanks! :)

I made this between Christmas and New Year and after consulting Bleu I used black currants in place of cherries as I still have a small ton of them. I really enjoy this sort of dish and this was no exception. I used more cinnamon just because I love it and Splenda for the sugar. The milk and yogurt were both fat free. I did find that it needed more milk before serving. I added about 2/3 cup and it was absorbed at once. This recipe makes a lot and for me it will be 6 to 8 servings. Thanks for posting this Bleu.
