Vanilla Pudding

Rainn Thomas


This is an amazing pudding. It was too sweet for me made as the original calls for so i cut the sugar in half. The original calls for 1/2 sugar, but I found it too sweet.

Also, a few have complained about lumps. Lumps come from the dry ingredients not being completely dissolved when stirred into the milk. Make sure to mix it very well, then return to the heat and continue to stir. I used a metal whisk/whip to do so and have never had such issues.

I hope you enjoy. I know everyone i make it for does. *smiles*
