I am VERY picky about finding the perfect rice pudding recipe. I've tried so many and I love this one. Absolutely delicious.
This recipe was a total disaster. I had so much milk and hardly any rice. How can adding 3/4 cup rice to 2 quarts of milk make rice pudding? I was very disappointed.
I too was trying a rice pudding recipe for the first time, and without looking at other recipes I decided to try this one as to the mostly good reviews. When I completed the pudding, my Fiance, who knows rice pudding, could not understand why the recipe calls for so MUCH milk compared to the measurements of the other ingrediants. We looked in recipe books such as "Joy of Cooking", and found other recipes of six servings, with 1 1/2 - 3 cups of milk, and seem to be baffled to the porportions of this recipe. In a dessert dish, this voids about 12 servings, an additional cup of rice, and maybe double the sugar, and it would be much improved.
Hope this helps others :- )
I have been searching for the perfect rice pudding recipe for some time now and I must say that I believe I have found it. I prepared this recipe for my children, 3,2 and 8 months. They all gobbled it up like nothing I have ever seen. I loved it as well. I did change some things though; I used 1 cup of long grain rice, 1 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of whole milk combined with the egg mixture, and 1 cup of raisins. It was excellent. I will definitely be making this again, and again...... Thank you for a wonderful recipe that took me back to my childhood!
i've never had rice pudding before, but my dad LOVES it. so i made it for him tonight. i cut the incredients in 1/2 but used 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of raisens...it was a hit! i will definately make this pudding again!
i topped it w/the fresh whipped cream as well and my dad loved it.
This was my first attempt at making rice pudding, and I have to agree that the amount of milk called for seems like way too much. Folling the directions exactly, it took me almost 2 hours to make, and it never set up. I now have a pan full of sweetened milk and a little bit of rice in my fridge. This would probably be very good if you use less milk, or a lot more rice.
If found this to be a very good recipe with several changes: 1. I steamed the rice first, using 1 1/2 cups of rice with 1 1/2 cups of water, then adding it to the boiling milk and simmering for 10 minutes. (I ended up steaming the rice in my first batch, scooping it out of the milk, after cooking it for more than an hour). 2. I used 1 cup of sugar and a little sprinkle or two of salt, because I like things very sweet. 3. I used 1 1/2 quarts (6 cups) of milk instead of two quarts.
This was my first try at Rice Pudding. It was a big hit at Christmas Dinner, with older people that know Rice Pudding. The only thing I changed was I added more rice, because that is the way I like it. Thanks for a great recipe!
