My fav vanilla pudding recipe, kids say they don't want it until I make it, then it disappears faster than chocolate pudding.

Very simple and easy with (I think) better taste than a box pudding. Do not leave alone it can go from no boil to over flowing in a second

Very easy and simple to make. Don't stir the milk mixture after you add the sugar! The sugar settles to the bottom of pan and keeps the milk from scalding as it cooks. Quick to make and delicious!
