Rice Pudding I

"My mother made rice pudding when I was a child. Now I make it, and my children love it. I usually make rice pudding from leftover rice after a meal. Just be sure that your rice floats in the milk, and the mixture is soupy. Rice absorbs very well. It will cook to be golden and crusty on top. Raisins are optional."

The only problem I found with this recipe is the amount of cooked rice. I have found that 1 and 1/2 cups does the job nicely. I have searched for months for a recipe that came close to a rice pudding recipe that I lost. This one fills the bill quite nicely. Great recipe. Sue


i have tried a few of the other rice pudding recipes and they all turned out quite nicely. maybe i did something wrong as i halfed the recipe but the egg separated and curdled and it was far too sweet. it also turned out an awful brownish colour. this is the only recipe that i have tried without success on this entire site.


I had to check back to the recipe to see if I made a mistake because it seemed so soupy. I didn't understand, I didn't think I added enough rice and maybe that would make it better. I thought it was very sweet to, but I think the kids liked it better because of that. It was much better cold and much creamer. Really the tast wasn't bad and it was low in fat. OK I made this again and it turned out GREAT it was creamy and wonderful I think what happened is that I added like almost twice the rice it was so good I changed my rateing.
