I am not sure if this is the right place for this thread - so I apologize if I started it in the wrong place.

I have alot of milk to use up, does anyone have a good pudding recipe - preferably vanilla but any flavor would do. Thanks!

Michele, I'm going to move this out to the general desserts forum since you want more than pie or pastry filling. I'll post a couple recipes in a minute too!:)

It's not vanilla, but it's very good!

Lemon Pudding
¾ c sugar
¼ c cornstarch
2 ½ c milk
3 large egg yolks, lightly beaten
2 Tbsp finely grated lemon zest
Pinch salt
½ c fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp unsalted butter, at room temperature

Whisk the sugar and the cornstarch together in a medium saucepan. Add the milk and whisk until smooth. Add the egg yolks, zest, and salt and cook, stirring frequently at first and constantly towards the end, over medium heat until thickened enough to thickly coat the back of spoon.

Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the lemon juice and butter. Pour through a strainer into a large serving bowl or 4 individual serving dishes.

Let cool to room temperature. Chill, loosely covered, for at least 2 hours and up to 3 days or until set and thoroughly chilled.

Sounds great! Thank you so much! What if I left out the lemon and added vanilla? I am not sure as 1/2 cup of liquid is alot to leave out, what are your thoughts?

Michele, you might want to try this easy 19th century English pudding:

QUEEN OF PUDDINGS

450ml (3/4 pint) milk
25gm (1oz) butter
Grated rind of 1/2 lemon
2 eggs, separated
50gm (2oz) castor sugar
75gm (3oz) fresh white breadcrumbs
30ml (2 tbsp) red jam

1. In a saucepan, heat milk, butter and lemon rind.
2. Beat the egg yolk with 1 oz sugar and stir into the milk.
3. Strain milk mixture, add breadcrumbs and pour into a 1.1 liter (2 pint) ovenproof dish.
4. Bake in the oven at 180 degrees C/350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until set.
5. Meanwhile, warm jam and spread over the pudding.
6. Whisk egg white with the remaining sugar until stiff.
7. Spread meringue on top of jam and bake for another 15-20 minutes. Pudding is ready when the meringue is lightly browned.

Death by vanilla pudding

1 cup Tapioca; small pearl
1 quart Whole cream
2 cup Water
¼teaspoon Salt
1 cup Sugar; brown
4 Eggs; large
3 teaspoon vanilla

soak tapioca in 2 cups cold water in refrigerator overnight. Drain and place in a large sauce pan with cream and 2 cups water. Bring to a boil, add sugar and vanilla slowly, stirring the whole time (it will get very thick very fast and lump if you don't) Beat eggs to a froth, add to pudding mixture. Simmer for 5 minutes (until eggs are set with the rest of the pudding) Chill overnight, warm each serving (microwave works best) and serve. This is a very rich pudding. Most people will not want very much, however they will savor each bite! If you do not chill the pudding overnight you are missing the chance to taste the best vanilla pudding you have ever allowed you pallet to enjoy.

This is a closely guarded secret...kept in the safe...But becasue of who it is..MM...

Uncle Bob's World Famous Banana Pudding...

1 qt whole milk
1 can Evaporated milk
3 cups sugar
4 Tbls Corn starch
5 egg yolks
1 stick butter..no subsitute
1 Tbl vanilla
Bananas...as many or as few as you like.

Put all of the milk in a sauce pan...reserving 3/4 cup
heat until just warm...Mix dry stuff, eggs, and 3/4 cup milk in a bowl.
Add to the warm milk stirring constantly until mixture thickens..Usually just before it boils..Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla. Cool slightly..

Start with a layer vanilla wafers on the bottom of your dish..then bananas..the pudding mixture...Repeat untill all pudding is used.
Top with whipped cream (the best)...or if you wanna.. use the whites for meringue..
Best several hours later...Refrigerate if you have any left....;)

My contribution Michelemarie, an old, very simple dessert that seperates into two layers. Great with tinned/or homecooked fruit. (Especially black plums.:rolleyes: )

Spanish Cream

1 Tbsp Gelatine
2 Tbsps Water
2 Cups Milk
2 Eggs, separated
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 Tsp Vanilla Essence ( but pure if possible)

Combine gelatine and water then leave to swell for 10 minutes. Heat milk in top of a double boiler until almost to the boil. In a separate bowl beat the egg yolks and sugar until thick and pale. Pour heated milk onto the yolk/sugar mix. Return to top of double boiler. Cook over a low heat stirring constantly until mix is thick enough to coat back of your wooden spoon. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.
Dissolve gelatine mix over a bowl of hot water and stir into the custard mixture. Chill until it has the consistency of raw egg whites.
Beat the 2 egg whites until stiff and fold into chilled mix. Pour into a wet mold and chill until firm.
Unmold onto a serving plate.
Serves 6.

This may seem like alot of mucking about but the end result, for so few ingredients, is just lovely. :)

I just found this thread looking for something very different and have to thank Lynan for the Spanish cream recipe. It is one of my favourite puddings, something my mother used to make often when I was very little. The only thing she did differntly was rather than mold it she would serve in the glass bowl she had chilled it in....makes it easier for a mid week kids pudding. Thank you for the memeory jog Lynan, I'll make this for DH very soon!

Michelemarie.....it is just vanilla out of a bottle. We call it vanilla essence. Hope you get to try the recipe, and do let us know what you think. :)

Lulu....you are welcome!! Do you have the Edmonds Cookbook? It has so many of my childhood favourites in it, Spanish Cream included. And Brandy Snaps and Yoyo's and Melting Moments and Anzac Biscuits and Afghans....etc...etc...etc.

lololol:) :)

I have a battered old copy of Edmonds but its in storage in UK. :( Having thought about it, and sort advice here I realised I can get recipes for most things online now...but its not quite the same is it? Things that flicking through you might be inspired to make are not necessarily what I think upo myself or reading here when planning the weeks meals!

Afgans are my DH's favourite, my mother makes them for him when ever he visits her because he loves them so much! I have never made him Anzac biscuits, maybe i should...

You could just make creme anglaise--known in the South as boiled custard. Milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla. Cook over simmering water until it coats a spoon. Store in the fridge and drink it, pour over pound cake or use as a base for ice cream.
Milk will freeze if you have too much.

Boiled custard. DH's mother probably made the equivalent of a water tower over her lifetime!!

4C milk
1/2C sugar or to taste
6-8 egg yolks
2 tsp. vanilla

Cook over the simmering water, stirring until it coats a spoon--about 170*. Do not overheat or the eggs will scramble. You can strain after cooking to get any small bits out.​

PA Baker, I used your recipe for the Lemon pudding except I decided to throw it in a chocolate crust and I must say it was one of the most delightful pies I've ever had. It had a very refreshing taste and there was just enough chocolate to compliment it very well.
