    This is very similar to the recipe I learned growing up. But the steps are a little different. We used only egg yolks and cooked it in a heavy pan, not a double boiler. In a medium bowl mix all dry ingredients and set aside. In small bowl beat egg yolks and set aside. In heavy sauce pan, medium heat, scald milk. Once milk is scalded, whisk in dry ingredients. Continue stirring (wooden spoon) and cooking over medium heat until thick. Remove from burner and spoon a little of the hot mixture into the egg yolks and stir well. This will begin cooking them slowly so they don't curdle when you mix them completely into the hot pudding. Pour egg yolks into the hot mixture, put the pan back on the burner and continue stirring and cooking for another minute or so. Remove from burner and stir in the butter and vanilla. We liked to eat it fresh and hot...or we would pour it over a piece of plain yellow cake. (instead of icing or frosting)

    Absolutely divine. :) I'm so glad that you posted this recipe! It's exactly what I've been looking for.

    To anyone else who would be curious about double boilers, just put some water in a big pot and do the mixing in a smaller pot that'll fit in the big pot. Same thing.

    Hi, I live in China and getting a double boiler may be a problem. Is there another solution? I am thinking I can do this in a sauce pan. Cocoa is another issue and I plan to use some instant hot chocolate mix I brought from U.S. for those cold winter nights. I am willing to sacrifice one since my friend from Germany expressed her "need" for some pudding. I have the vanilla (brought from U.S.), the butter, bought here but very difficult to find. If you can answer me on this I would greatly appreciate it. I do not have corn starch which some of the other recipes suggest.
