I added a handful of raisins and about a half teaspoon of cinnamon aside from the cinnamon stick. I left out the salt and added a bit more sugar. Simple to make. Good recipe. Read More

I added lemon zest to mine and it tastes so good. You don’t taste lemon in it but it adds kind of a mystery flavor that you just can’t put your finger on. Read More

Thanks! I made it as shown here with rice left from horchata. It is very easy to make. When complete, it was beautiful and delicious, but it was just a bit less sweet than I preferred. Next time I will go with 3 tsps of sugar or serve it with something to sweeten it a touch more. It will be my goto recipe for rice pudding from now on! Read More

This came out perfectly creamy and I used 12 oz evaporated milk and the rest whole milk. It wasn't very sweet but I added some strawberries on top and that sweetened it nicely without any extra sugar. Today I had some more just plain and I added a bit more sugar. If you want to eat this for breakfast it's fine without added sugar; if you want this as a dessert definitely add more sugar. Read More
