I used to make the cooking kind of the box puddings. Then I felt adventerous and decided to make it from scratch. Have never looked back since. It is best if made in a double boiler. (double boilers were covered in a previous posting) But if that is not feasible, you MUST
stir it constantly and with vigor. Can be very tiring. Don't blink, it will thicken instantly and burn even quicker. I prefer a metal saucepan over a non-stick. But you must make sure you get along that edge of the bottom. Or it will burn. Cook on low heat.
Any recipe on the 'net will do. As stated, they all contain some standard ingredients. When I see a recipe with less than five stars, I question the impatience of the cook, not the recipe. Good Luck.
