Yum. I used some golden raisins, and it all turned out tasty. (This uses Jasmati rice, which I've had before just as a side dish. It has a sort of silky texture, and makes the kitchen smell wonderful.)

This recipe did not turn out well for me. I followed the recipe with the exclusion of the Jasmati rice- I used long grain white rice as a substitute. The rice did not cook thoroughly, even though I baked for a total of 2 hours.

Pretty good recipe and simple, though I would suggest backing off on the sugar, maybe to 1/3 cup or maybe even 1/4 cup, and lessen the raisins to 2/3 of a cup. Also added several good shakes of cinnamon instead of a pinch and a couple shakes of nutmeg, which added a nice flavor overall. Thank you for a nice recipe for a busy mom :).

This is a good recipe but usually in a traditional rice pudding you would first scald the milk in a saucepan, then slowly add (to ensure that it does not cook the egg while pouring) it to the other ingredients. Also, as other reviewers said, this is a little too sweet, so I recommend 1/4 to 1/3 cup sugar depending on how sweet you prefer your pudding.

my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this recipe. We do like more cinnamon and that was the only change I made. It wasn't as "eggy" as some. Great!

OK. Too sweet, too many raisins (never thought I'd say that). I used leftover brown rice, baked for two hours before a butter knife inserted came out clean. I'll try a different recipe next time.

I would like to rate this higher, but it was too darn sweet. I made some for my partner, (HE LOVED IT)heck he'll eat anything. My suggestion is to use less sugar then it would be perfect. With any good rice pudding recipe, I've been tickering with different ways in presenting the pudding. I sliced fresh strawberries on top of the pudding and for ultra indulgence fresh whipping cream or a dollop of ice cream. Thanks for posting your recipe, you and your family must have a heck of a sweet tooth! ;)

Excellent. Everyone thought I bought it from the local Greek Restaurant but I finally told them the truth
