I have to admit, there was only ONE reason why I ever attempted to make this weeks TWD recipe choice: the fiance. I would be making something that he would actually TRY and possibly NOT make a face about.
I couldn’t deny him this (especially since EVERYTHING I’ve baked with TWD has been passed up by him. He’s a simple dessert man.) Making pudding from scratch irked me a bit, as I’ve never made it before. It was uncharted territory and that struck a bit of fear into my heart. I’m a weenie.
But oh boy let me tell you, if he never wants me to make it again I wouldn’t be hurt. There was more to do than I realized and here I thought this would be simple. In the pot to the processor back to the pot and back to the processor… it’s more than I want to deal with ever again. So, if there IS a next time, I’ll make it in a bowl with a whisk to minimize the hassle and spare myself some wasted nerves. Milk boiling over the pot kinda does that to ya.
I haven’t tried it yet and I didn’t get much time to photograph so I’ll update once its been tasted. Thanks to Garrett of The Flavor of Vanilla for choosing this recipe and forcing me to make my first from scratch pudding EVER!
