Homemade Vanilla Pudding Mix

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

Oh Vanilla Pudding!  I LOVE Vanilla Pudding!  Growing up we would always have boxes of Jello Pudding Mix in the pantry, either instant or cook and serve.  Now, as a child I LOVED chocolate pudding.  What kid doesn't?  As an adult, I now prefer vanilla.

And.......

I like it warm.

Yep, I like my pudding warm...if not a bit hot.  As a kid though, I LOVED it cold.  Funny how things change as you get older.

This mix is not an instant mix, you do have to stir it on the stove but, it is fast and easy.  Also, just like most things using vanilla beans, the flavor gets stronger the longer you allow it to sit.

3/4 Cup Dry Milk Powder
3/4 Cup Cornstarch
1 Cup Sugar
2 whole Vanilla Beans
1/2 tsp Salt

In bowl combine milk powder, cornstarch, sugar, and salt.
Split vanilla beans lengthwise then scrape out seeds (reserve spent beans).
Add seeds to dry ingredients and whisk well,  You may need to use a spoon to break up the bigger chunks of seeds, they like to stick together.
Place in air-tight container.
Place spent beans in container with mix, you may have to cut to fit.

Store in a cool dry place.
