To Make Vanilla Pudding Mix:

  • 31/4 cups + 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 cup + 2 Tbsp cornstarch (or your preferred thickener)

To Make Vanilla Pudding:

  • 3/4 cup vanilla pudding mix
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 Tbsp vanilla extract


Stir the sugar and cornstarch together. Store your vanilla pudding mix in an air-tight container. It’s sized to fit a quart jar.

Recipe Variation: If you don’t want to have to add fresh milk to your pudding when you make it, just add 4 cups of powdered milk to the mix, and measure out an extra 2/3 cup of mix for each batch.

To Use: Combine all the wet and dry ingredients in a sauce pan. Stir continuously over medium heat. It’ll take a little while for the dry ingredients to stir in completely. When your pudding thickens and begins to boil, it’s done. This should take around 12 minutes.

The pudding will continue to thicken as it cools.
