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!


  • 6 cups milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. In a large saucepan, scald milk. Meanwhile, in a bowl, beat eggs until creamy. Add sugars, flour and 1-1/2 cups of the scaled milk; slowly pour into saucepan with remaining milk. Cook and stir over medium heat until pudding thickens, about 15-20 minutes. Remove from the heat; add vanilla and butter. Stir well. Continue to stir pudding every 10 minutes until cooled.
