Addicting Vanilla Bean Pudding

Janet Scott


This recipe will make you moan it's so good. I think the best part is it's so easy! This is a vanilla pudding you can add your special touch to. I have layered it with Chocolate pudding and I also made it with a layer of bananas and crushed chocolate graham crackers. Play with this one! "Yumbo".

How to Make Addicting Vanilla Bean Pudding


  1. In a bowl, combine sugar, cornstarch and salt. Whisk extremely well.
  2. In medium saucepan, over medium heat, warm your milk until bubbles form at edges.
  3. Sprinkle sugar mixture and vanilla bean a little at a time into hot milk (whisking constantly). Continue to cook over medium heat and stir until mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. Do not boil.
  4. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla extract plus your butter. Pour into serving dishes. Chill before serving. I added banana slices in the middle of my dishes plus put in some crushed chocolate graham crackers on the bottom before pouring in the goods! Oh yea....MMMMmmmm mmm
  5. I did say it serves 4 but that all depends on the size of dishes you choose. :)

Fresh whipped cream is so much better than the stuff you buy in a tub or a can and so easy to make. We prefer to sweeten our whipped cream...
