I tried to make this pudding tonight and it just wouldn't set up into a pudding. I did use the correct short grain pudding rice and whole milk as instructed in the recipe. My oven was indeed correctly set to 150 C (300 F). I made no substitutions at all, and measured everything carefully. There was just still so much liquid, even after I let it cool. I wonder if the measurement of the milk is off? Some other recipes indicate baking the pudding with a lid on, perhaps this is missing from the instructions? I tried the recipe again, just to be certain I hadn't made any accidental measuring errors, and unfortunately, the results were the same (even after baking a further 30 minutes). It does set up more upon chilling and has a lovely taste.

I made a mistake in reading the instructions and tried to bake this at 150f not 150c. It took almost 6 hrs, LOL. The pudding did turn out to be quite nice. I used Arborio rice and as I also used 1% milk most of the creamyness came from the rice thus giving it a difference from the standard milk fat richness. I made it for DH and even he thought that the 3 tbsp of sugar made it plenty sweet enough. Just be sure to bake it at the correct temp and you'll be happy with this recipe.
