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!

Very easy and comforting dessert!! but can be made even healthier with sugar alternative: Even though it only has 214Kcal per serving and is quite low in sat fats, bit is still moderatley high in sugar... this can be reduced by using sugar alternatives, I used "Perfect Sweet" which looks, tastes and cooks like regular sugar but is made from Xylitol which is a natural sugar alternative that is found in a whole host of plants and fruits and occurs naturally in the body therefore no artificial freaky things in it and with only a GI value of 7 making it suitable for diabetics as well.

Niki, I also live in Australia so have just tried to cook this with arborio rice I will let you know how it goes even though it is more than a year since your question. You will no doubt have discovered that this place is very strange when it comes to food!!

Had lots of milk & cream left over from Chrstmas & decided to make rice pudding... put in microwave in a large bowl covered in cling film. cooked on medium for 20 minutes - stirring well after each 5 mins - came out absolutely perfect! Left on the side to cool - and added some more milk and stirred as rice had continued to absorb liquid... ok so you don't get the brown skin on top.. but it's a great way of making rice pudding very fast!
