I had never done stove-top rice pudding before, and it turned out tasty, but a bit thicker than I get doing the custard-oven method. I will stick to the oven method but this is a good recipe for those times you don't have an hour or more to bake the pudding. I might add some nutmeg next time. Sweetness was just right. Don't care for raisins, so left them out. Made for My 3 Chefs game.
