    I made this using ingredients on hand (so skipped the flaked coconut and used coconut milk and evaporated milk in place of milk and heavy cream). The flavors were great- it is genius to cook the rice initially in water with canela because it really perfumed the whole dish in a beautiful way. I found the cooking times to be way off- perhaps because I am currently cooking at altitude and am unaccustomed to making adjustments, but my rice needed hours more cooking (yes hours) to really soften and thicken the pudding and to set. Also, it seemed to be a lot of liquid going into this recipe-I ended up not using about 1 1/2 cups of the dairy called for because I was worried it wouldn't set, and as a result it wasn't nearly as creamy as I wanted.
