Recipe by Its Good to be Queen

Quick comfort food cooked in the microwave. My dear friend, Lori, had given me this recipe after our children, and ourselves, had devoured this scrumptious vanilla version on a cold winter day.

This was good pudding. I have never made it before as I use the box. I used the very large bowl so I did not have the overflow of the growing mass in the bowl. But everyone loved it so I will make again. Maybe I will experiment with other ingredients. Made for PAC 2012.
