"Read some reviews and added a whisked egg. I think I may have overcooked it because it doesn't have a creamy consistency. Overall, a good recipe though!"

"My husband loves rice pudding. I thought this recipe looked easy so I made it just the way it said. He loved it. It could have been creamier, so I will try adding the egg next time."

"In our family , my brother in law makes the very best rice pudding so when I saw this recipe I decided to give his recipe a challenge. My husband said not to bother as I couldn't beat the family recipe. I made this last night- omitted the salt and raisins and added the beaten egg yolk with milk as others suggested- and the pudding came out great. Very easy! I did bake it for an additional 15 minutes as after an hour it seemed to need a bit more time in the oven. And while it wasn't as creamy as my brother in laws, it was a close second and my husband loved it! Will make it again for sure!"

"If this is supposed too be a pudding it is missing the crucial ingredient of eggs. I followed the recipe then tasted hot & cold it was lacking the creamy of a good custard. I then checked some other recipes and discovered why the eggs. Also the entire can be done in the oven using the water bath method. Sorry."

"This is similar to my grandmother s recipe. It was cooked stovetop for about 20 mins, but it was finished by stirring in an egg yolk beaten in 2 tlbs milk after it was taken off the heat. That's what made it so creamy and delicious! I love it with raisins! This recipe is in every one of my church cookbooks!"

"I omitted the raisins and substituted Truvia/sugar blend (4 Tablespoons) and knocked the carbs down to 26g. This is great for my husband who is prediabetic. He can have a GENEROUS 3/4 cup serving for desert and not go over his carbs for the day. And he says it beats any rice pudding he ever ate!"

"This is an excellent recipe without using a pudding mix. Sometimes I use almond flavoring and I have to 4X the recipe...there's NEVER any leftovers (usually theres 10-15+ people eating). If you like it thinner, just use more milk. My son likes to add heavy whipping cream to his bowl, makes it thinner and creamy(er). : )"

"My oldest son, who's staying with us while recovering from back surgery, requested this recipe! I've been making it since it was published in TOH in 1996. We have 6 kids & this was frequently a Friday meatless meal for us. Never had leftovers! The fact that my kids still ask for it when they're home says how much they love it still! I don't add the raisins because my family doesn't like them. But, we sprinkle it with cinnamon & sugar. Wonderful!"
