I've been wanting to figure out how to make my own pudding for a while now. Since I've had to give up most corn it's been hard to find a recipe that isn't full of cornstarch. This recipe is simple, takes a few minutes, and is very yummy. I ended up making this for our Valentine's Day dessert and putting little chocolate hearts in it to make it fancy. Mine didn't have a pure white color because I used turbinado sugar. This recipe will make 2 servings.
What you need:
- 1 c. milk
- 1/4 c. sugar
- 1 1/2 T flour
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 t. vanilla(less if you use pure vanilla extract)
- 1 T butter
In a saucepan before you turn the heat on, mix together the sugar, flour and salt. Wisk in the milk. Wisk together until all the lumps are out and then turn on the heat. Heat until the mixture starts to simmer. Let it simmer for about 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and add the butter and vanilla. Pour into a bowl or container and let it chill for at least an hour.
