I have made this receipe several times now and it is the best! For those who said their pudding didn't thicken, a couple of suggestions. First of all you must use whole milk and heavy cream. Second use a short grain rice (the shorter grain rices make more starcch to thicken the pudding). I chose to add 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla and sprinkled the cinnamon on the top of the pudding after it was cooked. It seemed a little strong to me when adding a tbsp of cinnamon to the mix. All in all, every time I have served this pudding it gets absolute rave reviews. Thank you Tiny Chef!!
Followed the recipe exactly and ended up with cinnamon MUSH.
Use Arborio rice, it is a creamier rice.
Just made this for my dad today for Father's Day. I was going up against my grandma's tried and true rice pudding from when he was a little boy and this one beat it by FAR!!! So rich & creamy! *MY CHANGES* I halved the recipe, used whole milk, only 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, a dash of nutmeg, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 3 TBL butter, and three eggs. Definately use heavy cream and don't try to skimp with the fat because it really adds to the dish a world of taste :)
Fantastic...my husband and i have tried many many rice pudding recipes, all have been dismal failures. Then along came this one. WOW it turned out better than i could have hoped. I did decrease the cinnamon to 1 1/2 tsp and the servings to 6 but otherwise I followed the directions exactly and it was delicious. I do not recommend using skim or 1% milk and you cannot skimp on the heavy cream. I used whipping cream 35%..... this recipe is worth every minute it takes to prepare and the calories. Bravo!!!
This recipe is definitely a keeper. I didn't add the cinnamon to the recipe.instead I added approximately one tsp of vanilla near the end of cooking time. I like to add my cinnamon just before eating. This is one of the best rice puddings that I've ever had.
This was by far the BEST rice pudding recipe yet! I have tried a few and this is it. I followed the recipe exactly and it was great. For those who said it didnt thicken maybe you didnt use whole milk? Dont use low fat or skim. This is great, Thanks Tinychef!!!
This is the most delicious pudding I have ever had. To those who rated it negatively, you must have done something wrong. This recipe which I followed exactly turned out great.
