I've made this about 8 times now... I've done different flavors and had great success. Used brown sugar instead of white for a butterscotchy flavor, added lemon extract and zest for lemon puddin...

This was delicious! I doubled the recipe and substituted double flour for the cornstarch.

This is a great recipe to add just about anything to. My family loves it for banana pudding, and butterscotch pudding.

This was a very easy recipe. I used it in a banana trifle recipe, and it turned out perfect.

I ran out of eggs because I just made a quiche but I still wanted pudding so I gave this recipe a try. While it did thicken up nicely, I think the texture was kind of funny. It was almost gummy....

Thanks for this recipe. I will never buy a package of pudding again. It is very easy, and oh, so yummy. I added a pinch of cinnamon as well.

1/3 CUP OF SUGAR SEEMS TO BE A LITTLE TOO MUCH TRY 1/4 CUP AND SPRINKLE WITH CINNAMON WHEN CHILL.

My kids didn't like it too much, I guess they are used to instant pudding and pudding cups. I liked it as did my hubby. I didn't like how water settled on top though, it thinned it out.
