Homemade Pudding

Homemade pudding. The ultimate in comfort food. There is just something about it that you can't get out of a box!!!

This winter as we hosted some of our holiday parties and helped with desserts --- I brought out Grandma Berte's Homemade pudding recipe. (and I did NOT lick the spoon thank you very much...) This recipe is saved with the notes that it can be made into banana cream or coconut cream pie -- it is a great base for that. But you know what? I NEVER do that! When we make it in the house -- we make it -- slice up bananas into it if the mood strikes -- but 100% of the time it is eaten warm -- fresh off the stove!

So --- how much easier can you get? Not much to be honest. But --- how much yummier? Shush --- it's a grandma's recipe so you already know the answer to that! For our parties I made homemade edible chocolate bowls, added pudding and fresh berries to the top!

Here are a couple of pictures to show you the process -- now these were taken as I was making multiple batches at once! --- and I will tell you that on the things that don't have a measurement in the recipe -- they are "until it looks right". Like the water added to the corn starch. You are doing it until it is mixable -- and smooth -- but not too runny. Have fun with it! Experiment a little! Really -- if you have to eat the's not a punishment!

Here's the recipe --- I hope you enjoy this some night this winter with a movie and a cup of cocoa!


Banana/Coconut Cream Pie Base (the original recipe doesn't call for vanilla -- but I add that because we like it!)

First Mix 3 Tablespoons of Corn Starch with water until it is smooth, and add 2 Egg Yolks...set aside to remix right before adding.

Then in a saucepan put

2 cups milk

1/2 cup sugar

bring to a boil stirring continuously

After it is up to a boil -- add in the cornstarch/water/egg yolk mixture. You will feel it start to thicken immediately. After it is all heated through and thickened, remove from heat. This is when I add a teaspoon of Vanilla or Almond Extract -- depending on which kids are home and hungry!

So --- that is how I make it. Want to see the original recipe? From when cook to cook they assumed you knew what you were doing? I call it a pre-Pinterest recipe!

2 cups milk

1/2 cup sugar


Mix 3 Tbsp corn starch with water and add 2 egg yolks

Yep --- that's it folks. Haha ---- Enjoy!
