It was very sweet, so next time I'd reduce the sugar content slightly, but it as very easy and worked a treat. We used skimmed milk instead of semi-skimmed and it tasted delicious still.

It may be because I have fan oven but it took 3 hours for me to get to the right consistency and when tested, the rice still seemed grainy. I've left it overnight and hoping it has softened. But I liked the ease of this recipe - I might need to experiment with different heat settings.

I did use 1% milk though to make it even lower fat...

So simple, even a man can do it ... and I have done, many times.

Tried this last night and was a big success! Reminded me of the rice pudding my mum used to make. Lovely!

Absolutely delicious. I gave this recipe 4 stars because I altered it to suit my family: doubled all ingredients, used full fat milk, 1 tbsp vanilla extract and another of cinnamon. I heated the milk to just before boiling before adding the ingredients, to make it more creamy. I also checked it after 1 hour and then again at 15 mins to go, and added a splash of milk before stirring. This rice pudding is thick, smooth, creamy and sweet, but not sickly at all. Dished some out for my 4 yr old and I, then blitzed the rest for my 7 month old - enjoyed by all! Kept in fridge for days. Won't buy cans ever again.

A great, easy recipe! This is a nice finish to a homely meal if you want to warm bones and serve comfort food. We're up for 10-15cm of snow tonight, so creamy rice pudding is the way to celebrate winter!

Very easy comfort food pudding. I didnt add the lemon/bay ... and I cooked the dish covered as hubby doesnt like the "skin" on the top ... this prevented it from forming, but you could still taste the lovely nutmeg flavour through the dish. Just keep an eye on it though as I needed quite a bit of extra milk. Delicious and creamy!

Very impressed how this turned out. It was gone in minutes!
Fairly small portions for four so will double up next time.

Very good recipe. I didn't bother with the oven and cooked it on the top. Made double the amount. It was done in 40 mins. I also added a small can of evaporated milk for extra creaminess. delicious. Served it with pineapple in caramel sauce (pineapple chunks cooked with some demerara sugar). Would highly recommend it. Nice and comforting when it's raining outside.

Good base for a rice pudding that you can tailor to your own liking. I used rice flakes, cuts cooking time and popped in the slow cooker.. and added lemon zest & 1/2 juice of a lemon, also a vanilla pod. Made it refreshing.. Remember making rice pudding as a girl, but used far more sugar. More pleasant this way.

a nasty rice puding

Regular rice can be used. I use left over plain cooked white rice. only once did I actually buy pudding rice and would never bother again. To make it more creamy once done remove from the heat and stir in cream which can be single or double rather than using butter. If you want it thicker you can cook it with potato starch or stir in a small amount of ready break. Have fun and try different ways. If you cook on the hob when finished sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon, place under the grill until the top turns golden brown.

this is a fantastic pud because you can adapt it for the occasion. Come January, I only use skimmed milk (guilty pleasures!). In December, I use full fat milk and some cinnamon, and stir in some double cream before serving! For little ones, I stir in a pot of fruity fromage frais; it's wonderful for weening them when whizzed up to a puree. For entertaining, serve cold with exotic fruits. Or try using black rice. If you can't get pudding rice, try a risotto rice. You can even make it in the microwave. One thing's for sure - rice pudding rules!!
