Its great that you make rice pudding all the time libby but given the fact that 2 people are having difficulty it would have been useful to say which rice you used!

I made rice pudding yesterday (not this recipe) using a tin of Evaporated Milk topped up to 500ml with 100g rice. Not enough milk - it was like soft concrete :-) Next time will use this recipe but will bring the rice, sugar, salt and milk to the boil before putting into dish and oven. Will also put a bit of butter on the top with the nutmeg.

I've always made rice pudding this way as this is the method my mum and her mum used. Is there another way aside from just adding a touch of vanilla extract or full-fat milk?

I live in Australia and we make rice pudding all the time. This recipe worked well.

I haven't tried this version but I have been making similar rice pudding for over 30 years from childhood - thanks to my wee mum. My mum's method is to make twice the quantity and refrigerate the unused portion. On the second day mix the rice with an egg and place the mixture in a shallow, lightly buttered pyrex dish. Place under a medium grill until the surface of the rice has tuned a golden brown... This is delicious served with a light sprinkling of sugar on top and single cream poured over. It is even more delicious with fresh nectarines or peaches.

How lovely to come across such a straightforward recipe for rice pudding! Will be giving it a go this evening. Am thinking of stirring some raspberries through it and then grating some dark chocolate over the top. Yummy!

I like my rice pudding wetter that this so added more milk, no skin on top which is just how I like it :) I like to stir a little bit of Treacle into hot rice pudding just before eating, try it!!

Fantastic pudding! I am lactose intolerant so struggle for decent warm puddings. I used Lactofree milk and splenda to keep the calories down, and to be honest, you wouldnt know the difference!
