I made this recipe mid week and the plate was practically licked clean. Lemons never fail me...rice puddings I can live without, but between the lemon custard for me, the bulk of the rice to fill the hollow legs of my 6ft 5 (and still growing) 16 year old and his brother (who is desperately trying to catch him), and the speed of the whole dessert, you really can't go wrong this winter as the nights get longer and darker...
Update in 2022; So I still make this when the lemons are plentiful. I love it. It doubles as breakfast, (I mean, eggs, rice, it's practically porridge) and my youngest son still loves this and requests it on repeat. I think you will see why once you make it.
