    When I was a kid my Mum used to make rice pudding on Sundays. It was rice pudding with slightly burnt skin on top. We had it with evaporated milk. This recipe reminded me of that. I don't think we really did fight over he skin - although that is what people of my age might tell you. :)

    This is one of those deserts that I just could not have the desire, nor have the stomach to eat. :headshake::stop::ninja:

    The looks of it alone makes my stomach turn, and I feel like I'm about to get sick! I know that it is sweet and all, but I just can't eat it. Also, it looks too soft. :sick:
