My serger has been having issues, but I had it looked at and it's supposedly working fine. (We'll see!) So, hopefully I can get some more sewing (and tutorials) done! Until then, I thought I would share another recipe, this time for pudding:
We all love pudding, especially homemade, but my old recipe had you cooking and stirring forever! Ugh! So here's my recipe for:
2 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup cornstarch
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 egg yolks
2 Tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
First, I gathered my ingredients,
putting the cornstarch, sugar and salt in a bowl together, and beat the egg yolks.
Next, I put my milk in a pan,
and scalded (heat almost to boil) it over medium high heat, stirring occasionally.
Add the dry ingredients and stir. Take the pan off the heat.
Slowly add some of the hot mixture to the beaten egg yolks while stirring.
Then, add the egg mixture back to the pan.
Put the pan back on the heat,
and bring it to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for one minute.
Remove the pan from the heat,
and add the butter and vanilla. Stir until the butter is melted and allow to cool for a little while.
The pudding is done!
If you want to make a banana cream pie, you can pour this over a cooked pie crust lined with banana slices.
Or, you prefer chocolate pudding? Add 2 squares of semi-sweet chocolate to the milk and continue as normal. (Makes a great chocolate cream pie!)
Prefer butterscotch? Use 2/3 cup brown sugar instead of white sugar and add an extra tablespoon butter at the end!
My kids and I decided to layer our vanilla pudding with Nilla wafers and bananas:
The Nilla wafers get a little soggy, so we ate it quickly after adding them!
But just a plain bowl of warm pudding is super yummy too!
Mmmmm.... Yummy, easy and versatile! :)
