Reviews for Creamy Vanilla Pudding
"I made a half-batch of this, as a basis for a strawberry dessert. Excellent results in almost no time! Not stirring is scary, but it worked."
"Great recipe. I could not believe that I didn't have to stir this. I would give it more stars if I could."
"Easy to make, my family loves it."
"My family loves this delicious and simple treat! It works just right every time!"
"This had a good taste. However, it did not thicken. I added bananas and think it may be that with the moisture from bananas I should have lowered milk amount."
"Excellent recipe. I added milk, salt, cornstarch, and sugar together in pan. It's the right amount for 2 people but I think you should double the recipe. :)"
"5 stars - easy to make and yummy too."
"This pudding is even easier if made in the microwave. I skip the butter and still get compliments on this."
"Great pudding! Very easy to make!"
"This was really good. At first I was afraid the milk would stick to the pan without stirring, but it did not at all. I used 2% milk, but next time will use 1/2 evaporated milk, 1/2 water for richer and creamier pudding. I doubled this recipe to use for a banana pudding and had enough for some extra pudding cups. This was really good, especially since it was so easy. Thanks!"
"Yummy and easy!"
"This is a very quick and easy recipe. For that reason, I would make this again. I have, however, had creamier, richer pudding. I still enjoyed the flavor and the fact that I was eating homemade pudding."
"Yippee! Who would make an instant pudding when this delicious recipe turns out great in no time at all! I used it to fill the cupcake of the week- boston cream cupcakes- Great!"
"I LOVE this one! I have made it two times so far and both times i have loved the out come! Really really really good, and easy! Also, it is nice that it is made with on hand ingredients! so yummy!!! Five *****"
"Can you guys check the nutrition info? It seems pretty ludicrous:)"
