This did not turn out like rice pudding to me. Only change I made was using rice from the rice cooker and so I admitted the water. I am guessing, that only instant rice works in this rice pudding? The small amount of cornstarch never thickened the pudding. It was like plain rice with milk with very little flavor. I typically make rice puddings that are thickened with eggs or a vanilla pudding like cream mixture. Then, at the end the cinnamon amount was way too excessive. All I could taste was cinnamon and it turned the whole rice and milk a light brown color, which made it really not look like traditional rice pudding. This style of rice pudding unfortunately, is just not for me. I am rating it a 3, because I want to believe using fresh instead of instant rice was the main issue. Instant, must have a lot more starch. Still, like the rice puddings with the vanilla cream custard base better. The flavor was just not there for me, if even it was thick.
