I made this following @AntoniaJames's suggestions--less sugar, a pinch of nutmeg, and more vanilla--and we liked it very much. But even with the sugar decreased to 1/3 cup, we still found it a bit too sweet. Next time, I will try it with 1/3 cup minus 1 tablespoon of sugar and see if that improves it. No matter what you do with the sugar, though, it's a great simple recipe, a crowd-pleaser and very quick to put together.

This is one of the best vanilla puddings I've ever made, though I find it a bit too sweet. I'll reduce the sugar to 1/3 cup next time. I added the tiniest pinch of nutmeg (less than 1/8 teaspoon) when I first put the mixed ingredients into the pan. That enhanced the vanilla nicely, so I'll do it again. I also used 2 teaspoons of vanilla, which seemed the right amount. I made the pudding with 2% milk. it did not seem that much less rich than puddings I've made with whole milk or whole milk + half and half. ;o)

This is the best vanilla pudding recipe of all time. I make this recipe almost every week. It's delicious and easy to make. I love it.

This was tasty and quite easy. At first I thought it wasn't going to thicken, but then it came together really fast. I'm glad I used a whisk instead of a wooden spoon though because there were a couple of lumps.

Definitely trying this tonight! To clarify- you whisk everything together cold, right? And then cook? Thanks!

Turned out beautifully silky - love it! Delicious with a dusting of cinnamon on top.
