decent pudding recipie, Member lizzy4428

it's my first time making rice pudding, though I had it before. since im lactose free I was looking for a pudding recipe. I gave this a try and this is what you should know: 1.BEFORE you start spray the pan with nonstick spray.( I had to scrape the insides of the pan) 2.the recipe calls for too much liquids so subtract 1 cup from this recipe. 3. this isn't the best rice pudding in the world. but if you want something quick & easy for dessert then I suggest this.
