Try it with adding half a teaspoon of vanilla extract at the end.

I made this last night and it was very easy and delicious. I did, however, think it was just a bit too sweet for my liking, so I'll cut the sugar in half next time.

Simple and delicious!!! Great way to use up left over milk. I used whole milk because that's what I had on hand, and it was very creamy and delicious!!!!!!

Wonderful recipe; so warm and comforting on a blustery March evening. The only change I made was to replace 1-/2 cups of the milk with evaporated milk (1 can=1-1/2 cups). It makes it nice and creamy and just a tad sweeter.

Subbed coconut palm sugar for white. Really good!

Always cook my rice before but I'll try it this way and see how it works

I had one cup of left over cooked long grain rice and decided to use this recipe as a guide. I used only about 2 3/4 cup of whole milk (guessing on the appropriate amount since rice was already cooked. After eating, I thought maybe I could have used at least 3 cups milk and it would have been a bit creamier and been fine.) I added two beaten egg yolks as described in the Kitchen Tips on the recipe. Golden raisins were in my fridge so I added those, as well. I added cinnamon and a little bit of nutmeg to the mixture before baking and after baking I sprinkled a little more cinnamon for a finished look. I think this would be very good topped with whipped cream, but I just poured a little whole milk over the warm pudding. It was delicious.

I made this today. Very good. Next time I will add more milk. It was too thick. I would recommend a 2 quart instead of 1-1/2 quart baking dish as it bubbled over in the oven.
