If you like the rice pudding runny, check after 1 hour, if you like the pudding stiffer, and thicker, 1 ½ - 2 hours and it will be very thick. If you end up with your rice pudding too thick, add some milk heated through from the microwave and it will go loose again.
Delicious with Strawberry Jam. I like to eat mine cold too. Set in a bowl in the fridge overnight. When you bake it in the oven a skin will form on the top. If you don't like this, just remove it. But it does taste delicious.

is the rice cooked or uncooked?
Hi Marcy, it’s uncooked ?
thanks….wow, that makes it sound really easy and delish!!
That seems like a lot of milk,is this right?
Hi Shirley, yes, the quantity is correct. Whilst it is baking, you will find the milk is absorbed by the rice. Hope that helps!
