DIY Vanilla Pudding

Vanilla pudding is great by itself or as a base for other desserts, like banana pudding. This easy, homemade vanilla pudding is so much tastier than the boxed version.

Homemade Creamy Vanilla Pudding Recipe

  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 cups whole milk (divided)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp vanilla

  1. In a small mixing bowl, begin by stirring together ½ cup milk, egg, and cornstarch until well combined.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine 1½ cups milk, sugar, and vanilla. 
  3. Stir over medium heat to warm the milk.
  4. Take a couple of big spoonfuls (¼ to ½ cup) of the warm milk mixture, and add it into the cornstarch and egg mixture. Don't skip this step. This tempers the egg and prevents it from becoming a scrambled egg when adding it into the hot milk.
  5. Pour the cornstarch and egg mixture into the warm milk, and stir quickly to combine well.
  6. Continue to stir over medium heat until the pudding thickens and begins to bubble.
  7. You can serve this pudding warm (sounds good in the winter) or chill for at least 2 hours or up to 2 days and serve it cold.
