Vanilla and Chocolate Pudding

Vanilla and Chocolate Pudding

This is a recipe I am doing quite often and the reason is my daughter of two and a half years old. She loves vanilla pudding especially when combined with the chocolate one. Most of the time after launch she is asking for her delicious "surprise". She is so sweet that she can't even say the word right. When it happens the "surprise" to be pudding, she is over excited. 

 
I don't like to give her the pudding bought from the store as those might contain ingredients I wouldn't like to use in my recipes like any artificial flavors or preservatives. So this motivated me to try making the perfect homemade pudding. I have to admit it didn't work right from the first time. It happened that I've made it too thick or too thin, or too sweet or with lumps.. such an easy recipe apparently but actually it gave me some hard times until finally I reached the desired consistency and taste.
 
What I love to this dessert is that it is quick and can be served in various ways. Warm in a cold day or chilled in the summer days, with fruits or nuts or grated chocolate over the top. The pudding can also be a great option for filling fruit tarts and it can also be refrigerated up to 3 days. 
 
If you are a chocolate lover and want a richer chocolate pudding you might want to try this Creamy Chocolate Pudding recipe too, you will definitely not regret.

  • Makes about 6 servings
  • Vanilla Pudding
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 2/3 cups organic whole milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Chocolate Pudding
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 2/3 cups organic whole milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
Directions
  1. In a medium bowl mix together sugar, cornstarch and salt, If making chocolate pudding add the cocoa powder too. In another bowl beat egg and add 2/3 cup of milk and stir well. Gradually add milk mixture over the cornstarch mixture and whisk to dissolve well. Set aside while you heat the rest of the milk.
  2. In a medium sized sauce pan bring the rest of the milk (2 cups) to a boil.
  3. Remove from heat and gradually add the egg mixture over the hot milk whisking the whole time. Place it over medium heat and cook stirring constantly until the mixture thickens, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract. Only if needed you can strain it to be sure no lumps have formed. 
  4. Repeat the step 2 with the chocolate pudding in case you make both. 
  5. Pour the pudding into six serving dishes, place plastic wrap directly on surface of pudding and chill for at least 2 or 3 hours or serve warm. You can serve with nuts or grated chocolate or fresh fruits.

It never occurred to me to make homemade pudding. I don't buy it for the same reason you don't. My husband loves pudding though, so I think I see this in our near future! :) Thanks for sharing!

Hello, Please tell me what is the alternate of egg? I am vegetarian and I do not eat eggs. Thank you.
Re:

You can make the pudding with no egg, Just mix the dry ingredients with 2/3 cup milk. Make the steps of the pudding as described and optional in the end you can add 1 tbsp of butter in the pudding, in case you use butter. Let me know how it worked.
