This is an old Amish recipe. And I LOVE IT. You can eat it for breakfast, have it with lunch or it can be a nice desert.


  1. Mix all of the following ingredients together in a 2-quart microwave safe bowl:milk, eggs, cornstarchand sugar.
  2. Mix until smooth, then heat in the microwave, uncovered, on high for 45 seconds.
  3. Set the bowl on a hot pad, stir.
  4. Repeat steps 3 and 4 eight times{ mark each time you do this so you don't loose count}.
  5. Then stir in vanilla and butter.
  6. Let cool for 2 hours{ eating the pudding before it is fully cooked may upset your stomach}.

Just made this, this afternoon, with the intent of rescuing a cake that fell. Very easy and tasty. Thanks for posting.

Doubled the recipe because I was making trifle and made it all in a 8 cup measuring cup. Used 1/2 skim and 1/2 1% milk because that's what I had. It's a cross between a custard and a pudding. Better, cheaper and almost faster than using a mix. Fantastic! Will make again.

It tasted great, but I hade to microwave it a couple of more 45 secs. Maybe the problem is my microwave.
I used it for eclairs.
Thanks for sharing.
