recipe from http://jennifersikora.com/2012/05/homemade-vanilla-pudding/
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
- Combine sugar, salt, and cornstarch in a saucepan.
- Whisk in milk, and egg yolks, Cook over medium high heat, stirring constantly for 3-5 minutes or until thickened.
- Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla and butter. Whisk until butter is melted.
- 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.
- Serve warm or cold.
