Impossible Rice Pudding

Recipe by bshemyshua

Another recipe I received over 20 years ago. Its called impossible because with this amount of rice to liquid ratio it shouldn't work, but it has worked like a charm for me. Very creamy indeed. with an old fashioned taste.

Lovely recipe that was enjoyed by the whole family. Instead of raisins I used dried blueberries and instead of the vanilla pudding mix I used custard powder. This makes quite a lot so I now have some for the freezer.
