VANILLA BEAN PUDDING WITH A HEART OF DARKNES

 

  • Cooking Time: 15 minutes
  • Servings: 6
  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • Makes 6 half-cup servings
  • Ingredients:
  • 2 2/3 cups whole milk, divided
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Seeds from 1/2 vanilla bean (or 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract)
  • 1 large eg

Directions

  • 1. Bring 2 cups of the milk to a boil in a medium saucepan. While it is heating, combine sugar, cornstarch, salt and vanilla bean (if you’re replacing it with extract, don’t add it yet; if you’d like to toss the leftover vanilla bean pods in the pot with the simmering milk for an extra vanilla boost, go for it) in the bottom of a medium, heatproof bowl. Gradually whisk in the remaining 2/3 cup whole milk, a little at a time so lumps do not form, then whisk in the egg. Once milk is boiling, very gradually add it to the cornstarch mixture in the bowl, whisking the whole time.
  • 2. Return the mixture back to the saucepan, stirring constantly with a silicon spatula or wooden spoon. Once it comes to a simmer, cook it for one minute longer (which will cook the cornstarch and egg fully). Stir in vanilla extract, if you’re using it and divide pudding among 6 dishes. Chill in refrigerator until fully set, about 2 hours
