vanilla pudding

recipe from

this turned out really well! a few chunks of cornstarch, probably because i didn’t whisk enough while the pudding was cooking. i would recommend putting everything through a strainer at the end. also, it took more like 15 minutes to thicken.


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


  1. Combine sugar, salt, and cornstarch in a saucepan.
  2. Whisk in milk, and egg yolks, Cook over medium high heat, stirring constantly for 3-5 minutes or until thickened.
  3. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla and butter. Whisk until butter is melted.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap for storage. To prevent a skin or film from forming be sure to place plastic wrap up against the pudding, not just over the top of the bowl.
  5. Serve warm or cold.
