A Flavor Fave Ready to ParTAYE

Vanilla pudding offers a canvas for adornment; fresh fruit, jams, fountain sauces, crushed cookies—so much love on a vanilla pillow!

And malted milk powder brings extra joy and remembrance!


  • sugar – ⅓ cup
  • cornstarch – 4 TBS
  • agar – 1/2 tsp [or gelatin]
  • salt – ⅛ tsp
  • milk – 2-¼ cups, whole or thick plant based milk
  • yolks – 2 large
  • malted milk powder – 3 TBS [opt., find at supermarket]
  • butter – 1 TBS
  • vanilla – 1½ tsp

  1. In a medium pot combine the sugar, cornstarch, agar, salt, yolks, and malted milk powder [if using]
  2. Add 1/4 cup of the milk and whisk into dry mix to dissolve; then add remaining milk
  3. Cook over medium low heat and stir occasionally until bubbling, then maintain a gentle simmer for a minute
  4. Remove from heat and add butter, and vanilla
  5. Cool—and if you like—cover the surface with plastic wrap to prevent a skin forming
