By special request I made cooked vanilla pudding from scratch last night. I've made custard from scratch before but this was the first time I've made pudding without a box. Here's the recipe I used: Vanilla Pudding Recipe. As you can see the recipe isn't that difficult. It's not much harder than preparing packaged cooked pudding and it doesn't require any special ingredients. The result was quite good though perhaps a little sweet to my taste. It also wasn't perfectly consistent though I didn't stir it after chilling before serving. Having made scratch cooked pudding I now can't imagine buying boxed pudding again as it seems like a waste of money. Next time I'm going to try caramel pudding.
