Introduction: Easy Vanilla Pudding
In this instructable I will show you how to make vanilla pudding. This homemade vanilla pudding recipe is easy to make and made from scratch. While I still like the instant pudding from the store, homemade is so much better. If I can do it you can do it, let's get started!
Don't forget to follow me on this baking and cooking journey and check out my other instructables. :)
If you have any questions or comments leave them down below and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
Follow the easy steps below or watch the short video tutorial or do both. :)
Step 1: Ingredients/Tools
You may print the recipe here if you like.
- 2 cups of milk (whole, 2%, 1%) (500ml)
- 1/2 cup white granulated sugar (100g)
- 3 Tbsp. of cornstarch (23g)
- 1/4 tsp. of salt (1g)
- 1 Tbsp. of butter (14g)
- 1 tsp. of vanilla extract (5ml)
- spatula or wooden spoon
- metal spoon
- serving containers
- plastic wrap
Step 2: Mix Dry Ingredients
Add the cornstarch and salt to the bowl of sugar. Use a fork or small whisk and blend those three ingredients together.
Step 3: Heat the Milk
Next add the milk to a sauce pot. Place the pot on your burner and set the heat to medium. (350 F 176 C) Stirring occasionally and heat the milk until little bubbles form on the edges.
Step 4: Mix, Stir, Dissolve
Now add the dry ingredients a little at a time, stirring in between, until it dissolves, then adding more, until all the dry ingredients have been incorporated. Continue stirring and cooking, until the pudding thickens and sticks/coats the back of a metal spoon. Now remove the pudding from the burner.
Step 5: Flavor Time
Now let's add some flavor. Drop the butter and vanilla extract into the bowl and stir, until it is blended in.
Step 6: Fill, Cover, and Chill
Now fill up your serving containers and then cover the bowl and pudding with plastic wrap. This will keep the pudding from forming a skin on the top of it. Chill the pudding for at least 30 minutes before serving. Or you can certainly serve the pudding warm. :)
Step 7: Serve It Up!
Now time to eat that yummy pudding. :) Enjoy!
