Remove pan from the water and allow to cool. Chill at least one hour before serving.

"Me gusto la receta. Era facil hacer, pero para sacarlo del horno. Era rico sin ser demasiado pesado. Anadi mas vanilla y estaba delicioso."

"I made this for international food day at school...there weren't any leftovers! If you can get a bunch of American high schoolers to finish off a big batch of rice pudding you're doing something right!"
