For most of us, Vanilla Pudding comes ready made in little plastic tubs or if we feel like “making” it we get the powder in a box and mix it with milk. What if I told you that Homemade Vanilla Pudding was almost as easy as the boxed stuff and tastes sooooooooooo much better?
The three hardest parts of making Vanilla Pudding from scratch are:
- separating the eggs
- scalding the milk
- waiting the 1 hour chill time
The good news is the recipe won’t be ruined if you get a little white in the yolks, and it doesn’t matter if you break those. All scalding milk means is bringing it almost to a boil.
I can’t help with the hour+ chill time. Trying to do anything knowing that creamy goodness is in the fridge is tough.
