"Prep time does not include waiting to cool down completely over night. :-)"

Ready In:




  • Prepare pudding according to package direction.
  • Cover (so it will not get that icky skin) and let completely cool down over night.
  • Do NOT put it in the fridge.
  • Lay butter next to it, so butter and pudding will have the same temperature later.
  • On the next day, mix butter with mixer on medium speed until it is fluffy.
  • Add pudding- one spoon after the other.
  • Mix constantly.
  • If pudding is mixed completely with the butter, blend everything well some seconds, so that it is mixed up completely and is free of lumps.
  • TIP: Please do not use fat reduced products or a cheap pudding- the taste will not as good as with rich ingredients.

    I really thought I was going to love this recipe, and it is good, but just not what I expected. I think it has too much of a buttery taste for me. I still think it is a good recipe and will probably try it again. It is easy to make.


<p>I am a 42 year old secretary, born and raised in Germany and love to cook! Furthermore I like collecting recipes - I simply can't stop. Since finding Zaar my hobby is an obsession now. ;-) I found wonderful recipes and met very nice people here. <br /> <br />My big hobby is my Thermomix, a great gadget. With its help I do most of my cocking. As it is a blender, too, I really love blender food, as you may see when looking at my recipes. <br /> <br />In my free time I love reading thriller, meet friends and family and go to the movie.</p>
