I made this last night, and my boyfriend and I each had a serving while it was semi-warm. I poured the pudding into individual plastic cups with lids and put them in the fridge, and we ate the rest of it with lunch today! This recipe is very simple to make, and very rich because of the evaporated milk. Next time, I will experiment and make it using regular whole milk for comparison. Definitely better than boxed instant pudding and boxed cook-and-serve!
This makes a good pudding when you tweak it a little. I use 2 cups milk instead of the 1 can of evaporated. It makes it less thick. After it sets up using the evap. milk it's consistency is undesirable. However, after mixing the dry together in the pot first, then adding 2 cups regular milk and whisking until thickened, works well. I add the vanilla with the milk addition. I also add a pinch of Kosher Salt. The butter is added at the end when the heat and pudding are off the stove. This really is good when made this way.
Cooking time is about 15 minutes not 7 minutes.
I could not believe how easy this recipe was. It was incredibly delicious also! A new favorite dessert.
Quick to make and easy too.Make when everything else is planned.Needs close watching and frequent stirring.use a wisk to prevent lumps.Cook on lowest temperture or use a double boiler to prevent scortching.I used sugar replacement and low fat cool whip.Healthier version
This is too thick, and doesn't have the depth of chocolatiness I was looking for. While it is as easy as box pudding, the seasoned palate will find the texture and taste less than desired. Perhaps the recipe could be adjusted to lessen the cornstarch, and increase the depth of chocolate...I probably won't use this recipe again as there are so many classic recipes out there, but I will say that this was VERY quick! If you like to experiment, this is a good place to start from. If all you've ever used previously is boxed mix, this may be an improvement. If the flavor issues were resolved, then this would make a good pie, as it would stay in form and not run all over the plate.
I use this recipe in my beginning culinary arts classes. It is quick, easy, and uses ingredients
commonly on hand. Students and I agree that it tastes great.
Very easy to make and creamy. I put in half almond extract and half vanilla. My husband and I ended up eating it all!
