I used jasmine rice. It's so yummy. Thanks smellyvegetarian :) Made for ZWT9
We really enjoyed this sweet rice. It made a nice, light dessert that wasn't overly sweet. I ate sweet rice when I was a kid, but we always used butter and brown sugar. The powdered sugar was a nice change of pace. I made this as written, mixing the cinnamon into the pudding instead of just sprinkling on top. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

OMG!! Did this ever bring back childhood memories!!! My Mom always made rice, and for us kids, she added butter, cinnamon and sugar, her and my Dad just added the sauce from the meatballs she made to go along with the rice. Thanks for sharing the recipe and bringing back some great memories!! Made for ZWT 9.
