      This is yummy! I was having a craving for good vanilla pudding tonight, and I made the basic vanilla recipe as written. The only thing I would say is that when making just the basic vanilla without variations, it is a little sweet as written. Next time I will cut the sugar down to 1/2 cup. But for the other variations, it needs the extra sweetness for the other ingredients. This is a keeper, which I will definitely make again, eventually trying all the variations. Thanks Pamela!
