creamy and full of flavor, I love cinnamon and nutmeg so feel free to cut the amount if you would prefer.

Awesome recipe, however the water amount is way out. If I hadn't added more water the rice would have been burnt to the bottom of my pot big time. I used coconut milk instead of regular milk and used 1/2 the sugar. I added my raisins to the milk / vanilla mix before starting anything else to plump them up a bit. I left the pot sitting on the stove with the cinnamon sticks and a lid for about 1/2 hour. Great way to use cinnamon sticks.

We loved your rice pudding, & since we're also big fans of the California raisin, I divided the cooling pudding in half (two separate containers rather than individual ones) & added one whole cup of dark raising to one of the containers! We did like the pudding plain, but we like our raisins, too! Thanks for the great pudding recipe! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Cookbook Tag]
