    Wonderful and there are a lot of great variations already posted. Stevia taste AWFUL to me, plus the powder form has been bleached. YES, I use Splenda in moderation (good grief people, lighten up). Other good alternatives to Splenda are evaporated cane sugar, agave, raw honey, pure maple syrup. - 5/30/08

    Very good. Mine didn't get thick enough - I think I was too afraid of burning it, but it still tasted really yummy. I added raisins, vanilla and cinnamon (no butter on top). - 5/29/08

    I used honey (1/4 c--it may have been too much) instead of artificial sweetener and added a little cinnamon. This recipe is really delicious! It could even pass for a hot cereal for breakfast! I really do think the butter adds a fullness to the flavor and texture that it needs to be complete. - 3/6/10

    I plan on making this, but to resolve the sweetner issue, I too dislike the taste of Stevia. I use SomerSweet, which is healthy,(made from beans), and tastes like sugar with no after taste, and has no arsenic (for those opposed to Splenda). - 7/5/09

    I'll try it w/ maybe a quarter cup raisins and 2 or 3 teaspoons real sugar & top it w/ cinnamon. ( I lost my weight w/out using artificial sweeteners. - 5/24/08

    I too made this with cinnamon but used only 1 T. lite marg. It was very good. However, raisins have LOTS of calories, 140 in 1/4 c. so if you put 1 cup in the recipe, the calories really go up, so I skipped it. You can used Sugar Twin brown sugar also for the brown sugar. - 5/24/08

    I think that this recipe has the basis for a lot of potential, but I would change things up a bit by using canned fat free evaporated milk (as it lends most dishes a natural creaminess and would eliminate the need for butter), and definitely add some spices (cinnamon or maybe ginger & citrus peel). - 4/30/08

    Yum! Rice pudding has always been one of my favorite comfort foods. I also added raisins and cinnamon, and ommited the margarine (the rice had margarine in it). I ate it warm w/ a splash of half & half. So good! - 1/21/10

    Added raisins,vanilla and cinnamon.
    First I have heard about arsinic in Splenda. It must be in such a minute amount,if at all, that I'll continue using it with confidence. Splenda has help make my transition in this lifestyle change bareable for the cost. I like the results when baking...Chef Jim - 7/5/09

    thought the recipe was basically good I made changes to meet my tastes. That said are the negative comments really necessary. Use the rating scale to rate it - 5/30/08

    I think this is a good basic recipe.It is very versatile.I don't use Splenda for health reasons so I would use stevia instead.I would use molasses for brown sugar,add spices,maybe all-spice or apple pie spice, and raisins,or even dried cranberries and substitute rice milk, for the skim milk. - 4/30/08

    This sounds good! I'll add cinnamon, raisins and vanilla or almond. I ditto the comment about leaving such bad comments. If you don't like rice, splenda, etc., don't make it! - 7/5/09

    brown rice for rice pudding is a great healthy idea. Doctoring it up with vanilla,cinnamon, a few raisins and ff evaporated milk is definitely the way to go. - 7/5/09

    The EPA allows more arsenic in our drinking water than there is in Splenda. Do the math. http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/aspar
