Best Classic Vanilla Pudding

Best Classic Vanilla Pudding

This is one of the best and easiest classic vanilla pudding I've ever had.  Inspired by the original recipe from Mr. Food, I used real vanilla beans rather than the extract.  And then of course, I dressed it up a bit with fruits. 


The Recipe
Serves 4

Ingredients for Best Classic Vanilla Pudding:

  • 3/4 cup sugar (I used 2/3 cup to cut down on the sweetness)
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 fresh vanilla bean  

Preparation:

Combine sugar, cornstarch and salt in a medium saucepan.  Whisk milk and egg yolks in a bowl.  Then gradually stir into the saucepan.

Cook over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes or until mixture thickens and is bubbling.  Whisk or stir with a wooden spoon continuously.  Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla beans.  Using a strainer, pour the pudding into individual serving dishes or a large bowl.

Cover with plastic wrap directly on the surface of pudding (so that the top does not dry out) and refrigerate 4 hours or until firm.


Enjoy!
