Very good! I made this recipe as-is even though I was not sure about adding the sugar. All 4 of us liked it, including my 4 and 6 year old daughters. I will use this recipe again but will leave out the sugar. The raisins add enough sweet.

I am not entirely sure if I assumed wrong or not...but this recipe came up at a top 5 in the "rice pudding" category and I assumed it would be pudding. It was literally cooked rice and raisins. There was zero sauce and when I thought back to the recipe it was the same water to rice ratio as making rice, aside from an extra 2T of milk. It tasted fine after we added brown sugar, cinnamon, and milk on top.

We really liked this recipe it was simple and sweet. We used dried mixed berries instead of raisons and it tasted great.

Rice pudding is huge in Germany. I have not had it in years. This was quick and delicious to make!

Didn't have any raisins on hand, used dried cranberries instead. I also decided not to top with sugar. This is a fantastic recipe, would never have though to throw dried fruit in to my time apricots!!

Very good. It's definitely not a pudding (nor does it claim to be), but if you like fragrant rice, this is really delicious.
