Wonderful!! The maple flavor adds alot. I substituted and used skim milk and real maple syrup. Warm with some Cool Whip "Free"

Whoa, this is sooooo sweet!! It's almost hard to enjoy because of that. I would cut the sugar in half if I were to make this again. I used brown rice and skim milk. Added an egg with the second addition of milk because it wasn't thickening up at all. (Probably because of the skim). It worked well though, and thickened right up. Good texture.

Loved this recipe. I make it for breakfast as an alternative to oatmeal on cold mornings. I add dried apricots as well.

Very tasty and creamy. Definately let sit so the creamy mixture will thicken perfectly - about 20 minutes.

This is an excellent recipe. It thickened perfectly ... and has a delicate texture, and intense spice flavor. I'll be making this again, and again ... and again.

This is DELICIOUS! I rated it 4 stars (and not 5) because I did change a few things. I took the advice of another reviewer and decreased the sugar to 1/4C and that was sweet enough for me. I also used 1/2tsp vanilla instead of the maple extract and added 1/4C raisins. The amount of spices is just perfect and it thickened up just fine. Very good for a relatively quick version of rice pudding!

As far as rice pudding recipes go, this one is very good. I made it exactly as the recipe instructed except for adjusting the flavoring. I am not a maple fan, so I used vanilla which worked nicely in combination with 1/4 tsp.nutmeg and a pinch of cloves.

this was pretty good. I used real maple syrup instead of the extract. I didnt need as much milk as was called for and it didnt thicken up as much as i thought it would. Also the rice didnt cook very well. I had to simmer it after adding the milk for more like 30 mins. This recipe is similar to one i make all the time. I cook the rice in 1/2 c sugar and a combo of milk and water(i add alittle more than is needed)then when rice is cooked i add spices or vanilla, marg and a little more milk to give it a rice pudding cinsistancy
