This rich, creamy homemade vanilla pudding recipe comes together in no time with a few kitchen staple ingredients! You'll never buy box mix pudding again!
The vanilla pudding will continue to thicken as it chills, but you want it to be close to the desired thickness before removing it from the heat. The longer you whisk over heat, the thicker your pudding will be.
This pudding is very nice served on its own. If you want to jazz it up, some nice toppings include whipped cream, chopped vanilla wafers, or fresh fruit. See post for additional topping suggestions.
For a less rich pudding, you can use all whole milk, or a combination of whole and 2% milk.
