When I was younger my mom would make an awesome homemade vanilla pudding for banana cream pie. ¬†It was one of my favorite desserts, I loved licking the spoon, and scraping the sides of the pan. ¬†She didn’t make the pudding very often, so it felt like a special occasion when she did make it.
I may or may not have mentioned that my husband is lactose intolerant, so I can’t make my mom’s amazing vanilla pudding. ¬†Until I found this awesome Bavarian Cream oil from LorAnn. ¬†It has such a great creamy flavor I can make a pudding that isn’t cream based, and no one can tell the difference.
I always thought the pudding was hard to make because my mom didn’t make it very often. ¬†But it isn’t. ¬†I made a few adaptations (obviously), and want to share this with you, because you deserve a special occasion. ¬†In fact, this recipe is so easy to make, a Wednesday night treat is all the occasion you need.
1 c Sugar
4 Tbsp Cornstarch
2 egg yolks
1 1/2 tsp Bavarian Cream Oil from LorAnn Oil
2 c boiling water
Sift the sugar and cornstarch together. ¬†Mix the egg yolk and oil together. ¬† Whisk the egg mixture and sugar mixture together in a double boiler. ¬†Whisk until smooth. ¬†Add the boiling water to the sugar/egg mixture and mix together until smooth. ¬†Continually stir until the mixture is thick. ¬†Cool and serve.
I placed my pudding in pie shells baked in mini torte pans for an individual serving.
That isn’t whipped cream on the top of the strawberries, it is actually cool whip, because cool whip is lactose free.
My husband gobbled these up!! ¬†I barely had enough left to take a picture.
What special occasion will be your excuse to make this pudding?
I was not compensated for this post, but I did gratefully receive the LorAnn oil free. ¬†All opinions are my own.
