Homemade Yummy Vanilla Pudding Recipe With Berry Topping

Homemade Vanilla Pudding Recipe With Berry Topping
Homemade vanilla pudding is easy to make

Have you ever made pudding from scratch?  It’s super easy and rather tasty.  Here is a kid-friendly recipe worth trying.  The berry topping is optional depending on how much time you have.  

Yummy Vanilla Pudding With Berry Topping

Makes 4 small servings

2 1/4 cups 2% milk
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Pinch of salt

In a medium size sauce pan whisk sugar with cornstarch and milk.  Turn up heat to medium high and stir until just about boiling, about 5 minutes.  In a separate bowl whisk 2 eggs and 1/4 cup milk.  Slowly whisk in the hot milk and cornstarch in a slow and steady stream, whisking constantly so you don’t get scrambled eggs.

Add mixture back to the pot and cook on medium heat, whisking until thick, about 5 minutes or so.  Add butter, vanilla and salt.  Stir, then transfer to a bowl.  Place parchment paper on top the surface of the pudding. Chill until ready to serve.  

Berry topping

3 cups fresh or frozen mixed berries
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Place fruit, sugar and lemon juice in a medium sized pan and cook over medium high heat for 5 minutes until fruit is warm and has a sauce-like consistency.  Server over yummy vanilla pudding.
