This thick, traditional pudding always puts a smile on our face 'cause it reminds us of Mom's old-fashioned vanilla pudding. Yup, there's nothing like a little Classic Vanilla Pudding to bring back good childhood memories.

What You'll Need

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

What to Do

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch, and salt. In a medium bowl, whisk milk and egg yolks; gradually stir into saucepan.
  2. Cook over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, or until mixture thickens and is bubbling, whisking constantly.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla. Spoon into individual serving dishes or a large bowl.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap directly on surface of pudding and refrigerate 4 hours, or until firm.

Oooh...the good stuff!

Perfect! And quick and easy. I've been searching for the vanilla pudding recipe for years, this is it. Only thing, it's really sweet. Next time I'll reduce the sugar some. But other than that, perfection.

Reminds me of mom's! Have been using this in my Banana Pudding instead of the packaged for years.
