This was made for DH. I used the requested size of pan and the milk and half and half with the rice filled it to within 1/2 inch of the top. When it came time to add the raisins and water I was able to add all of the raisins but there was no possibility of adding any of the water. It baked up firm and DH says that it has a good flavor but it's not at all creamy. That might not have been the case had I been able to add the water. There was really no lemon flavor either as the lemon juice was in the water. I would advise anyone who makes this to use a 2 quart dish, you'll need it to hold all of the liquid.
