Caramel pudding was always a favorite in the family when I was growing up, now I enjoy making it for my family. My grandmother often cooked "from scratch", and she still does. As you can see from this recipe, it uses a good many "on-the-farm" products, which made this tasty treat even more enjoyable—we'd get to eat the fruits of our labor!

"The BEST pudding I've ever had. I used maple syrup as my only sweetener, and it was incredible."

"This recipe is comfort food at it's finest! Since it's just my husband and me, I cut the recipe in half and used two small eggs. The pudding was very easy to make and the smaller batch cooked a bit faster. I have found that if you rinse the pan with water BEFORE you add the milk, the pudding mixture will not scorch and stick to the bottom of the pan. (My grandma shared this tip with me years ago!)"

"This is even better with toasted coconut on top. Tasty by itself but for something a little different put some peanut butter in after it's through cooking. I fix this and the chocolate pudding (also great) quite often for our evening snack."
