Microwave Vanilla Pudding - Opt Banana Pudding

Total Time

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.


  1. Stir together the sugar, corn starch, salt and milk. Microave this on high for 8-9 minutes stirring every 2 minutes.
  2. 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.

This was very good and so quick and easy to make. Make sure you use a large bowl when microwaving this.

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!
