I don't know if that has something to do with it. Does anyone know why this happens to my pudding/how I can keep it thick?
I don't think there's much you can do about it. If you dish out some of the pudding and put the rest back into the fridge, liquid from the pudding will seep out of the pudding and collect in a low spot.
Pudding is a custard and when you stick the spoon into the custard, you are disturbing the cells of the custard and causing them to release liquid. the same will happen to a large container of yogurt. Just pour off the liquid (don't try to mix it back in) and eat the rest.
