    I am sorry but I must be the only person who does not like this rice pudding. I have been brought up on traditional English creamy rice pudding, cooked the old fashioned way in the oven. I have used the same recipe for years, and everyone I have cooked it for has always adored it, but thought I would try something different. The recipe is very quick and easy to follow, but the taste for me was not good. I have given this 2 stars as maybe I have been far too spoilt in the past to enjoy this!!  -  12 Jan 2013


    The secret to any rice pudding is the timing of the sugar. It must not be added until the rice is thoroughly cooked otherwise it will forever remain hard. Those who did not like this recipe should test the rice for tenderness before adding the sugar in the final stage of the recipe.  -  16 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My daughter found this recipe on the site and decided to make it last night. Erica, I wish I could give this more than five stars because it was incredible! My dad worked for Tuscan Dairy for fifty years in Union, N.J. and they made an amazing rice pudding, which I've never been able to even nearly duplicate. Thanks to you, this is pretty close! I omitted the raisins and used skim milk because it was the only thing I had in the house. The next time Ty gets a desire to make this great dessert, I'll have her use evaporated skim milk as it really replicates a light cream or a whole milk. Thanks so much!  -  25 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
