My mother gave me this recipe and said this is the only way to cook pudding. I like it hot but feel free to let it cool before eating. This is great served with bananas and vanilla wafers.
- 2⁄3 cup sugar
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups milk
- 3 egg yolks, slightly beaten
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Stir together the sugar, corn starch, salt and milk. Microave this on high for 8-9 minutes stirring every 2 minutes.
- Remove some of this liquide and stir slowly into egg yolks - too much and you will cook them. Once mixed slowly add to the hot mixture. Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes until thick and glossy. Stir in butter and vanilla.
I am a vanilla pudding junkie. This is the very best microwave vanilla pudding I have tried. It reminds me of when I was a child and the pudding my grandmother used to make from scratch. I have been unable to duplicate that one and this is right there. WOW!
Excellent and easy! What more could one ask for? This was super easy for a last minute dessert. The pudding thickened beautifully, was creamy in texture, and tasted delicious. I layered in bananas & vanilla wafers while still warm, but the pudding really would support any flavor. Discovered during Spring 2011 Pick A Chef. Thank you for sharing the recipe! =)
