My grandma has used this recipe since she was a little girl. It makes a very good, rich pudding to use in cream pies, trifles, or just for eating. If you want to reduce the richness substitute some of the evaporated milk for skim milk. You should use at least 1/2 cup of evaporated milk though. Variations: Maple Pudding: replace 1/2 cup sugar with 1/2 cup real maple syrup and omit the vanilla.
