Vanilla Pudding

Simple Vanilla Pudding ++ ThePearAndPlum

Quick and easy and awesome.

(This recipe makes 4 servings.)


  • a little less than 1/4 Cup Sugar (the full 1/4 is just a tad bit too sweet for me)
  • 2 T Cornstarch
  • Dash Salt
  • 2 Cups Milk
  • 2 Egg Yolks (really dont use the whites- it makes for a lumpy mess)
  • 2 Tsp. Vanilla
  • 2 T. Butter
  1. Combine Sugar, Cornstarch & Salt in a bowl.
  2. In another bowl, combine milk and egg yolks.
  3. Mix the wet into the dry.
  4. Cook in a sauce pan over medium heat – STIRRING CONSTANTLY (milk and high heat is a difficult combo). Stir until the mixture starts to thicken and boil.
  5. Boil and stir 1 minute.
  6. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and butter [I used less than 1/2 of what it calls for but i’m sure the original amount is awesome. When is more butter not awesome?].
  7. Pour into dishes and chill. [or eat it the second its done like i do. We top it with bananas sometimes which is great.]
