Normally you would think of pudding as having eggs or or what is known as a custard. You can have a real easy dessert and not have eggs. In fact, the look and feel of this dessert is that close to panna cotta. This dessert should cost you a lot less than panna cotta (cooked cream). It also sets in a fraction of the tme of Panna cotta. Quick and easy. Hope is works for you. A little banana bread with the pudding is a good cpmbination for us as a dessert,

Step 1: Ingredients.
2 -1/2 - cups milk.
Teaming 1/2 - cup white sugar. (brown sugar would be an interesting change).
11 teaspoons - corn starch.
1/2 - teaspoon salt.
1 -2 teaspoons butter
1 - Teaming teaspoon vanilla
This yeilds about four to five servings.
Step 2: Warm the milk.
in a two quart saucepan, add the milk and bring to a light bubble (do not Boil! Watch carefully.
Step 3: Adding the sweetness.
Mix the sugar, salt, and cornstarch in a bowl. When the milk has heated to having light bubbles around the edge add the mixture to the milk in small amounts. I usually use a teaspoon to spread the mixture over the top of the milk while I am stirring. Stir or whisk in the mixture well avoidiang lumps. Again, do not let the milk boil.Continue stirring till it begins to thicken enough to coat the back of a spoon.
Take the milk off the heat. Add the vanilla and the butter. Stir well so everyting is incorporated. You can pour the mixture in separate serving dishes or just leave in in the pot. Refigerate untill chilled.
Step 5: Dessert.
Mixture even after a few minutes solidifies pretty quick. When finally chilled. serve your dessert. Adding fruit would be a nice touch/ You can not beat that for being easy.
Note if you use powdered milk or evaporated canned milk, this would be a great recipe when camping out. You could whip it up real quick for a picnic also .(Do not for get the ice! (to chill it.)
