Awful recipe! Followed the recipe and it was dry and bland. Look elsewhere.

really easy recipe, I used 500ml of skimmed milk and 100ml water and baked at 180c for 1 hour and it was more than enough. Had to add more milk to loosen up (skimmed milk probably the reason) but this was fine. Also added rose water and cardamon seeds instead of bay and nutmeg. Will definitely save and use again.

This recipe never fails, I have used goats milk and a cinnamon stick with 2 oz of single cream added at the end of cooking most times to make this, in my opinion it makes it richer and tastier. A winner everytime for my family

This is my go-to rice pudding recipe and it works every time! Make it with skimmed milk. As others have said it's very sweet & cutting back on sugar works for me.

Delicious and works with skimmed milk too. I would suggest less sugar tho, unless you have a very sweet tooth.

I made this for my wife who is not well. She said she could eat some tinned rice. We had none so I found this recipe and decided to have a go. I had all the stuff in stock. It took no time to prepare and mix and the result went down a treat,

Yummy!!! First attempt at this rice pudding recipe and wasn't disappointed. Super easy to follow and end result was scrummy so much so that myself and hubby scoffed the lot in one go! This will be my go to comfort pud recipe. Thanks bbcgoodfood

Hi, any tips for storing it? And how long does it last when stored?

Thanks for your question. You can store this for up to two days in the fridge. Make sure you cool it quickly before refrigerating.

Have made this several times over the years as it's not too naughty, but often found it was too wet even after 2hrs. So I reduced the milk by 50ml and it's perfect every time now!

Recipe works equally as well on stove top and takes less time. It will just need a little more minding.
