Creamy vanilla happiness – a delicious dessert recipe


1/4 teaspoon salt

2 large egg yolks

2 cups whole milk

1/3 cup granulated sugar

3 tablespoons cornstarch

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Whipped cream, for serving

Grated chocolate or ground cinnamon, for garnish (optional)


In a medium saucepan, stir together milk, sugar, cornstarch, and salt until well combined.

about 5 to 7 minutes.In a small bowl, lightly beat the egg yolks. Gradually add about 1/2 cup of the

hot milk mixture to the egg yolks, stirring constantly to temper them.

Add the warmed egg yolk mixture to the pot along with the remaining milk mixture, stirring


Continue cooking over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture reaches a pudding-like

consistency, about 2-3 minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract until well incorporated.Divide the

pudding between individual serving plates or a large serving bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and place

the wrap directly on the surface of the pudding to prevent a crust from forming.

Before serving, sprinkle each portion with a dollop of whipped cream and, if desired, a pinch of grated

chocolate or ground cinnamon.
