I'd never thought to make my rice pudding in a bowl on a stand in the slow cooker, but it turned out great. Set perfectly, lovely and creamy and the addition of cherries really ramps up the flavour. Great recipe!

I really enjoyed this recipe except for the fact that all my cherries dropped to the bottom. It is a flavorful rice pudding without much sugar so the flavors of the ingredients really come through. I made this for Cameraless Chef and I will be making it again.
