This is an old family favorite. It is perfect when you have leftover rice from a stirfry or another recipe. I have made it often lately for dinner guests with rave reviews. Such a comfort food. Wonderful warm from the oven and delightful cold as well!

Hi, The receipe was very good it was not overly sweet. I substituted Vitamite for the milk and Splendra for the sugar as we are diabetic's and lactose intollerance. I also used crushed pineapple instead of raisens. I had to cook it twice as long to get it to set as I used the Vitamite. I also used 2 teaspoons of vanilla. The receipe turned out very good and I hope the substitutions will help other diabetic's and lactose intollerance people. My husband love rice pudding and this receipe was just right to use the substitutions in. Thanks, Lady Bug & Jeff Boy

The flavour of this was very good. I liked that it wasn't overly sweet. For some reason I had to bake it for almost twice the amount of time listed to get it set, and I have no idea why. I substituted soy milk for the milk which worked out really well, but perhaps affected the cooking time? All in all a really nice dessert, and a fabulous way to use up rice. Thanks Kimke.

i've been trying alot of rice pudding recipes lately as i always have leftovers and i have to say this is the best one yet! it came out like a custard but was easily cut into squares. great presentation but it is sweet and custardy. i used currants and 1/2 c light cream, 2 cups milk. leftover jasmine rice from dinner, wonderfully delicious.this is a keeper!try it with sliced strawberries!
