Have you wanted some pudding, to just eat or for a recipe but didn’t have any in the pantry? Well now you will be able to just make your own and it won’t have all the extra stuff that is in store-bought, plus this just tastes so much better. And it is easy to make.


Basic Pudding Mix

8 cups Powder Milk

4 cups sugar

4 cups Corn Starch

1 teaspoon salt

Stir together all ingredients until well blended.  Store in a covered container. Attach a tag with mixing instructions.

For Pudding
1 Cup of mix
3 cups boiling water
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 Tablespoon Butter


Place one cup of the mix in a small saucepan.  Slowly add 3 cups of boiling water, stirring as you add the water.  Cook over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring constantly until the mixture is thickened. Add 1 tablespoon of butter at the end of the cooking time once the mixture has thickened.
For Chocolate Pudding
Add 3 tablespoons cocoa powder to the dry mix before cooking.
For Lemon
Omit vanilla and add 1 tablespoon lemon juice and 1 tablespoon lemon zest.
For Banana
Add 1 tablespoon Banana extract (when you add vanilla) and 1 cup sliced or mashed bananas to cooled pudding

    Funny that you say that as I made a bread and butter pudding when I was at my mum”s house for someone who”s father had just passed away. I had to leave that day, so mum made a syrup out of the jam and drizzled that on top of the pudding! 🙂 quake on the lake
