This was too simple for words! Tasty too! I don't always care for the taste of eggs so I gave this a try just to see if it would make a good banana pudding. It made an excellent, and fast banana pudding.This pudding, a few vanilla wafers and a couple of sliced bananas and life is good. Thanks for sharing an easy recipe!
I really like the taste of this pudding, however I could not get it to thicken. While stirring I allowed the mixture to boil for quite some time, and still it did not thicken. I added about 2Tbls more starch, but by then the milk was already forming a lot of skin. It finally thickened with the extra starch, but the pudding is full of milk skin chunks. Should I tell my roomates it's tapioca?
This recipe is just what I was looking for. A light dessert recipe that's very easy to prepare. If you can make gravy from a packet you will have no problem with this recipe. Set up very quickly too (30 min.) for a nice mold.
This has to be one of the simplest recipes I have come across. It takes about 10 mins from start to finish. The texture smooth and creamy. The reviewers who say it is bland intrigue me, what do you think vanilla pudding is going to taste like? If you want a stronger taste use a different essence, I have made them with almond essence and toasted almonds and also tried mixing 2-1/2 tsp of coffee with 1-1/2tsp of water in place of essence and they have all come out beautifully. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe it is a definite favourite.
This recipe came out pretty good. I added a bit of cocoa, as the vanilla was just a bit bland for me, but the consistency was right on. I think I might try it with bananas or use brown sugar for 1/2 of the recipe net time.
This is the same recipe I've used for years, so I can vouch for it. You can add nearly any flavoring, including cocoa, (up to 1/4 cup).
It's also a good base for many kinds of fruit (I use the fruit water with dry milk, instead of plain milk).
I usually don't continue to let it cook after adding the vanilla...probably just from habit.
this pudding is wonderful! it thicken wonderfully, i was worried about how it would taste because most people seemed to have troubles with it but is was great! I didnt put it in molds i ate it warm
I hate the taste of eggs in pudding so I tried this and loved it. Made banana cream pie.....love it!
