Homemade Vanilla Pudding

Have you ever made homemade vanilla pudding? And I don’t mean the one that comes out of the box. Well it’s not that difficult. With a few ingredients, you’ve got yourself a great little dessert. You will love this, it will be the best vanilla pudding you’ve ever had.

Pudding is one of those things that I grew up with. I’ve always loved pudding, vanilla pudding, chocolate pudding, rice pudding, you name it and I love it. You can make this vanilla pudding with a real vanilla bean or just use vanilla extract. I happened to use vanilla extract this time, because I didn’t have anymore beans.

Pudding is a dessert that is easy to make, you quickly put it together with some milk, eggs, sugar and you thicken it with cornstarch. It may sound plain, but serve it with some berries like I did, and you’ve just made an exquisite dessert.

You’ll need a medium saucepan in which you’ll mix together the sugar, cornstarch and salt, and just whisk it until there are no more lumps from the starch.

In another bowl crack the egg and whisk, then add the milk to it and mix it well. Pour the milk mixture over the sugar mixture and turn the heat to medium. You’ll have to whisk the milk frequently to avoid lumps. As the milk mixture thickens and before it starts boiling, start adding the butter and vanilla extract and continue whisking. After it comes to a boil, keep it on the heat, while still whisking, for another minute or so and it’s done.

Let it cool completely and serve it with some strawberries and blueberries and enjoy!

    Great recipe, thank you for sharing! Was looking for a simple, whole egg recipe and this one looked good, tasted great! Ended up doubling the recipe and using a whole vanilla bean instead of the vanilla extract. Will definitely be making this one again, a real hit with the entire family.
