Homemade Vanilla Pudding

Submitted by: SLIMKATIE

Introduction

This Homemade Vanilla Pudding recipe is SO EASY to make that you'll never make pudding from a box again. My grandma's recipe actually called for 1 cup of sugar, but I found it too sweet for my taste--I cut it back to 2/3 cup, next time I will even cut it to 1/2 cup. The nutrition info is for 2/3 cup sugar.

I realize that it's a lot of calories to spend on a dessert, but it's worth it in my opinion (especially since I had jaw surgery and am on a liquid diet--this is my only treat!)

Ingredients

    2 whole eggs (large)
    2/3 cup sugar

    2 cups milk (1%)

Directions

Combine the eggs, sugar, flour, and vanilla in a medium sized pot with a wisk. Add the milk, wisking as you add, until everything is combined and smooth. Heat over medium high, stirring frequently, until the mixture comes to a boil and thickens. Stir in the butter until melted. Remove from heat, pour into a container, and cool before eating.
It tastes great cold, but I think it's heavenly when it's warm.

Makes 4 generous servings.
