Simply delicious! Agree with the earlier comment about not needing a full 2 hours to cook - I pulled this after about an hour and a half, added a generous pour of cream and was gobbled up by everyone! A winner.

Really creamy, although I used full fat milk and stirred through a little cream at the end.

This is a great easy recipe. I used risotto rice and it worked just as well.

Lovely, simple recipe. Works every time. Remember to butter the dish first & turn the dish half way through for a lovely top.

Just made this and its lovely... The Bay leaf gives it a lovely home cooked taste. Mine didnt need the two hours in the oven and i probably should of taken it out just over the hour but ovens are different. I can see this being a comfort pud staple in our house from now on. So much better than the tinned stuff but sooooo easy to do.

This recipe is so good! I made this to the recipe and then half quantities again as a quick fix dessert. Only one problem, I couldn't stop eating it!

Loved this - I always end up having rice pudding boil over when I make it on the hob, so baking it in the oven meant no nasty clean up for me! Doubled the recipe, added quite a bit more freshly grated nutmeg, used half full-fat milk and popped a vanilla bean in it. I was dubious about just leaving it in the oven - but after 2 hours it was perfect. This is my new go-to recipe.

Made this pudding at the last minute for my Mum and Dad coming over for dinner tonight, since I had all the ingredients in. Lovely and light, with a nice, refreshing flavour from the lemon zest. Tastes great, and pretty healthy, as puddings go, too!
