Homemade Vanilla Pudding Ingredients 

2 cups milk
1/2 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon butter

Directions for Making Homemade Pudding:

In medium saucepan over medium heat, heat milk until bubbles form at edges.

In a bowl, combine sugar, cornstarch and salt.

Pour into hot milk, a little at a time, stirring to dissolve.

Continue to cook and stir until mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a metal spoon.

Do not boil. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and butter.

Chill before serving.

Homemade Whipped Cream:

Whipped Cream Ingredients

1 cup whipping cream or heavy cream

1 teaspoon vanilla or other flavorings

Whipped Cream Instructions

Pour the cream in the bowl

When ready, measure it into the bowl of a stand mixer or a metal bowl.

Add the vanilla and other flavorings.

Begin whipping: Increase mixer speed to medium and begin whipping.

Watch for firm peaks (8 to 9 minutes): If you continue whipping, the cream will stiffen even more and you might notice it taking on a grainy texture.

Serve or store: Once you’ve reached your ideal stage of whipped cream, serve the whipped cream immediately or cover and store it in the refrigerator for a few hours.
