I made this with two changes. I added four beaten eggs to the cold milk and let them heat together, being careful not to let it boil. And I used only half the cornstarch. It came out great.
I'm not a professional puddinhg maker or anything, but I'm almost positive this is missing something signifigant. Eggs maybe? More corn starch? I don't know but the end result of my try was runny......BIG TIME. The flavor was nice I suppose if just would have thickened into a pudding texture if would have been very nice ( I added a pinch of nutmeg and allspice). I'm hoping maybe there was a misprint and hate to have to rate this a 2 as I think it *could* be good, but as is,....not worth the effort.
I have to admit I cheated a little with this. Instead of watching a saucepan, I put my milk in the microwave and let it go for 3 minutes. (This always brings the milk to a froth in mine, but times will differ depending on machines and it's best to keep a close eye on the situation as the milk bubbles up rapidly (and over the sides of the container) when it's boiling.) I had all the other ingredients ready to go and as soon as the milk was close to boiling over, I added it to the rest. This doesn't result in a solid pudding, more of a custard, but it does have a fabulous taste.
Increased the cornstarch to 3 tbs., added some nutmeg, and made it in the microwave. It worked out great. I am always on the lookout for recipes that use honey instead of sugar, and this one is a keeper.
This pudding failed to thicken. I cooked it over 10 minutes (more than twice as long as the recipe called for) and it appeared only slightly thickened. But I thought if I refrigerated it, it would thicken to the proper consistency. No, I have Chilled Honey Vanilla Soup!!! Something must be missing (eggs?).
If you want a great pudding recipe, keep looking. If you want a tasty addition to fruit smoothies, try this. Make this recipe, then put it in the blender with fresh fruit and crushed ice. The recipe didn't work for me, but I didn't want to throw it out, so I used it in smoothies. Delicious.
I made this to toss with fresh cut fruit. I made lots of substitutes, but my best tip is to add a teaspoon of xanthum gum if you have it – thickens it right up. Also added a teaspoon of lemon juice.
Too thin for a good pudding, but makes an excellent sauce. Slice of pound cake, top with fruit, pour some of this over it, and you've got a great dessert. So while it's a 3 as a pudding(only for the great flavor) it's a 5 as a sauce, so I split the difference and gave it a 4
