"Super easy to make and quite tasty. I used this today in a cake as a lighter version of pastry cream, and it worked really well."

"This was a great filling for my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary Cake. You may want to double it though...I also added an additional tsp of vanilla because I love vanilla and using vanilla bean is even better."

"This is exactly my mom's pudding recipe, just pared down. Very yummy. I had some leftover rice last week and mad this into rice pudding. Delicious and brings back very fond memories of home."

"This pudding was a really good base for "cinnamon roll pudding."

I took a partial batch of homemade cinnamon rolls out of the freezer, chopped them up, and mixed them with the vanilla pudding, YUM!"
