This is a very easy recipe to follow and has an interesting taste - it is without all the spices (cinnamon and nutmeg) that everyone else puts in. This makes it so easy to top with whipped cream, preserves, or dried fruit such as raisins or chopped apricots.

very easy...I just made it with leftover rice from Chinese takeout. we always have rice leftover and I hate to throw it out. I added a little more vanilla and some cinnamon and raisins. it thickened up a lot quicker then suggested. not my grandmother's but very good for something so quick and easy!!...thank you!
