Thanks to the previous reviewers I was prepared for this recipe :) I made it the night before to serve for breakfast the next day and I had all the pots I'd need ready. It does make a bit of a mess dishes-wise but it is completely worth it this 'dessert' is delicious! I would serve it as a dessert too even though it's not very sweet but after a heavy meal this would be the right touch. It worked well for breakfast too though. We all loved it and will definitely be making it again!

Risotto becomes a kind of rice pudding in this dish, with a sweet-tart syrup drizzled over the creamy rice.
