My husband LOVES rice pudding. I like using my appliances for everything, and have taken to modifying everything I can for the appliances that do all the work. here is a really good one. My DH tends to like alot of texture in his stuff. you can leave out the apples and raisins if you prefer and it turns out just as great. NOTE: when you look in there, it may look like it is over cooking. it is an illusion. Just stir it up.
