This tastes just like the creamy, delicious rice pudding I was brought up on in England! I doubled the recipe, and as suggested, used evaporated milk in place of part of the milk. I was in comfort food heaven with this one ~ couldn't stop going back to the pan for extra helpings! Thank you for transporting me back to my childhood, Lennie! Pure indulgence!
I was sorely disappointed when I couldn't find a recipe similar to my childhood favorite (Current's - Miriam B Lou's)on Recipezaar. I was weary to try a new recipe (esp. w/o eggs)! I followed this recipe as written with the following exceptions: used 2 cups half & half, 2 cups 2% milk, added cinnamon and 1 cup of raisins before baking. This is the easiest, richest, most incredible comfort food I have ever tasted. I even made a low-fat version for our family (using FF half & half and 2% milk - Alli friendly) and you couldn't tell the difference! It tasted like I remember as a child!!! Thanks Lennie!!
Delicious Used a quarter of a vanilla bean instead of vanilla essence - wanted it to be extra special for dessert for a friend with lots of dietary restrictions - worked great with lactose free milk. Will definitely make again and share with friends. Thanks for posting
Easy and wonderful. I followed the suggestion of other reviewers and substituted one can of evap. milk for the whole milk. Used arborio rice. Rich and creamy! Yum!
I don't particularly like rice pudding so made this for dh. It smelled so good I had to try it - and it was great! I used arborio rice, and I threw in a cinnamon stick for the first hour or so of baking. Very creamy and yummy.
Oh, my gosh, we all LOVED this! I made two, one for now and one for the freezer, but it may just go in the fridge, to be COMPLETELY DEVOURED tomorrow! And there are only three of us, and one of us is a two-year-old! I added 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon and a handful of raisins to each batch, cooked them at the same time, and, well, words cannot describe how wonderful this dish really is! This will definitely be made again and again!
This was sooo good! I cooked it on top of the stove, and added 2 pieces of whole cinnamon, it came out perfect! Thanks for sharing!
I cannot believe i made such a delicious rice pudding! The taste was phenomenal. The recipe was so simple and it wasnt expensive to make either! My toddler daughter loved it as well. We used all organic ingredients; and arborio rice and regular organic sugar as i was out of brown. I will make this again. Thanks for the great recipe!
Lennie, this recipe is just wonderful! I made this to take to DH, and I doubled the recipe, I used half milk and half and half cream, I also added in 2 large pieces of cinnamon bark, and used half brown and half white sugar, also I increased the sugar a bit... I started the cooking process on top of the oven until just to a boil and finished baking it in the oven in my large white Corning Ware casserole dish. I cannot stop eating this it so delicious! I'd better leave some for DH LOL! Lennie, thank you for a fantastic rice pudding recipe, I'll be making this again and again, it is SO good!...Kittencal:)
I love this recipe and have made it now, four times. It's a very adaptable recipe, and each time, I seem to try different ideas. The first time, I had only three cups of milk, so I added a can of sweetened condensed milk and ommitted the brown sugar. It was terrific. Today, I have a cold, and wanted comfort food. I'm out of butter, so I added honey-butter, and halved the recipe. Can't wait 'til it's all done! YUM!
