The Boy considers this pudding to be almost as tasty as his favourite cookies.


Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, light or dark
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons of butter


Step One:

  • 1 ½ cups brown sugar, light or dark
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Whisk the above ingredients, together, in a medium-sized saucepan.

Step Two: 

  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • Have 2 tablespoons of butter measured and set aside.

Whisk milk and eggs, together.  Add mixture to the dry ingredients in the saucepan.

Stir the blended mixture, in the medium saucepan, over medium heat, until it thickens. This should take about ten minutes.

Step Three:

Once thickened, add the 2 tablespoons of butter, that was set aside earlier. Stir. Divide the pudding between bowls and chill at least one hour, or longer.



Serving Tips:

I often use teacups as serving dishes. Stackable cups make for easy storage. Teacups with saucers allow for a place to rest your spoon and a small cookie.
