We haven’t tried this recipe for homemade pudding yet – my daughter wants to try it this week. If anyone tries it, let us know in a comment what you think.
3/4 cup of sugar
2 tablespoons of cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon of salt
2 cups of milk
2 slightly beaten egg yolks
2 tablespoons of butter or margarine
1 teaspoon of vanilla
In a saucepan, blend the sugar, cornstarch, and salt. After it’s blended, add the milk. Cook and stir it over medium heat till thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir the misture for another two minutes and then remove the pan from the heat. Add the yolks to the mixture. Cook and stir it for two more minutes and remove it from the heat. Add butter and vanilla. Chill.
For chocolate pudding: Increase sugar to 1 cup amd add twp 1 oz squares of unsweetened chocolate along with the milk.
For butterscotch pudding: Substitute brown sugar for granulated sugar and increase butter or margarine to 3 T.
