I didn't fancy cooking it together as it looked a bit gloopy in the picture so cooked the plums and rice pudding in separate dishes and then served together. Worked really well and the plums were just gorgeous. Used the leftover plums for breakfast with yogurt.

The rice pudding topping was nice but didn't think it went with the plum mixture. Had 4 people who didn't eat it after tasting it.

@Cilla: Wikipedia recommends risotto rice as a replacement for pudding rice. As for the golden caster sugar, it can be replaced with any kind of sugar because the nutmeg, cinnamon, orange and sherry would anyway overcome its flavor.

I used ordinary round-grain rice as that's what I had and it turned out very good, apart from the rice not remaining white as pictured (the plum juice bubbled over it).
Had it for breakfast and the serving size was just right for that purpose, but as an after-meal dessert I'd halve the serving size.

I want to try this recipe as it sounds lovely. However, what would I buy here in the US in place of pudding rice and can I use regular sugar in place of golden caster? Thanks!
