Tried the chocolate variation tonight and I have to say my final product was NOT pudding..had more the consistency of a thick chocolate sauce. It was intensely chocolate but I can't help thinking the 1.5 cups of sugar made it more gooey than a cornstarch thickened pudding would normally be. I have a microwave recipe that uses 2c of milk but no where near the same amounts of cornstarch, cocoa or sugar as this one does. Such a disappointment, I can't give this more than 3 stars at this moment...maybe if the other two variations satisfy me enough I'll bump it up to 4.
Wow! I tried the butterscotch and I was worried it wouldn't turn out when I got a few blobs, but all stirred out and it was so creamy and rich in the end. Thank you! I'd never thought to make homemade pudding before!
I tried the Butter Scotch recipe, it worked like a champ. My sister and I were talking about instant puddings this weekend. She is of the mind it is easier to buy it at the store. I mentioned you can make it at home and it taste better! This is now in my rotation. Good recipe, Thank you for posting it.
I made the chocolate version on this recipe. WOW! It was great! --very rich. And it was really easy.
I made the vanilla version of this recipe, and only made 1/2 of it. I made it to go on E.Z Apple Crumble, but kept tasting spoonfulls before I got the apple crisp ready! I chose this recipe specifically because it did not have eggs in it. I whisked constantly, and it stayed very thin for quite some time. But when it began thickening, it took less than 30 seconds for it to come to the perfect consistency. My vanilla pudding recipe from now on! I'll NEVER buy another box of cook and serve pudding! Can't wait to try the other flavors as well! Thanks for posting!
