This is so good! I have been trying for years to find a recipe that tastes like the rice puddings at the Greek restaurants and this is it! Only thing they do is garnish it with sprayed whipped cream and cinnamon. Rice pudding really is a formula recipe like baking. Follow this recipe verbatim. I used golden raisins my preference and 2% milk as my only minor deviations. Do not use non fat milk artificial sweeteners or regular rice and expect this to turn out thick and creamy. I made sure not to boil it at the end as stated so it did not separate. It stayed pudding like with that suggestion. Unless one eats large desserts I would say this is probably closer to 5 servings. This one is being saved in the recipe box for future rice pudding cravings. ty Read More

Very delish! And was a snap to prepare. I used soy milk. Added a hint of vanilla instant pudding. And added cinnamon to the egg mixture. Enjoy!!! Read More

The taste is amazing but I took a star away bc the tempering of the eggs was waaaay off. You must add enough hot mixture to the eggs to bring them up in temp to add to the rest of the pudding or else the eggs cook! The instructions just say "add a small amount of hot mixture" and that just doesn't cut it. I would like to spare someone else from the same mistake if possible. I also added a little extra sugar and no raisins and it is amazing. I've made it every day for a week now. Read More

Love it! I can't stand raisins so I subbed with rough chopped walnuts. I followed the directions to a T but ended up cooking the egg a tiny bit when I added it BUT that's because I'm impatient and hungry and it smelled SOOOO good I NEEDED it! Sooner rather than later so... Yeah it's gone now. Taste like yum. - Read More
