A friend and I were talking recently and the subject of pudding came up. She mentioned how much she liked it, and so I asked her if she ever made it. “It’s too hard, isn’t it?” she asked me. So, I invited her over and we had a pudding making party. She was impressed with how easy-and how good–it is.
Here’s the recipe:
- 2 cups vanilla soy milk
- 1/2 cup raw sugar
- 2 tablespoons corn starch
- 1 teaspoon vanilla.
Put the cornstarch in a small lidded along with a small amount of the soy milk. Shake vigorously until cornstarch is dissolved. This is quite important. If you do not, the cornstarch will clump up, which will ruin all of your eating enjoyment. Add the rest of the soy milk and sugar, then stir well. Pour into median size pan and heat on medium high, stirring often. Cook until it starts to simmer. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
Here are some photos of the steps involved. It really is amazingly simple, as well as tasty.
My friend thought of making green tea pudding, so I tried that. I mixed half of the milk with half cold green tea. That was very yummy, too.
For adults, I like to pour about a tablespoon of Kahlua or other flavored liquor on top of the pudding. It runs down into the pudding as you eat, flavoring it all through. It makes a sophisticated desert for a dinner party.
Let me know if you have any questions about the recipe, or what you think if you do try it.
