But honestly, I love pudding.
I really only like the boxed stuff in recipes.
Just to make a dessert of boxed pudding isn't really appealing to me.
But make homemade pudding, count me in!
One reason why I like pudding is that most of the time I have the ingredients on hand.
Especially for vanilla pudding.
The ingredients are pure and simple.
If it's been awhile since you've had "great" pudding, try this soon!
I might just make a believer out of you!
2 1/2 cups milk, divided
pinch of salt
1/2 cup sugar
3 TBSP cornstarch
2 egg yolks, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
1 TBSP butter
Place 2 cups milk and salt in a saucepan. Sprinkle sugar and pinch of salt on milk and do not stir; heat over medium-high. Quickly combine cornstarch with remaining 1/2 milk; add egg yolks and mix well. When milk comes to a full boil, remove saucepan from the heat and stir in cornstarch mixture. Pudding will begin to thicken. Return to the heat and cook for 1 minute, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla and butter until the butter is melted and well incorporated. Pour into individual dishes. Serve warm, my favorite way to have homemade pudding. Yield: 4 servings.
