Recipe Notes

NOTE: To use this baking pudding mix recipe as an instant pudding dessert, add 1 part pudding mix to 1 part cold milk & 1 part cold coffee (can substitute coffee with another part of milk if desired) Beat vigorously with a whisk until all lumps are removed and pudding is thickened, about 2 minutes.

Since it's a very basic pudding mix I like to add a couple of drops of vanilla extract for a pop of extra flavor.

This makes a very thick pudding so add a small amount of milk (or cold coffee) if a thinner consistency is desired. (Pudding thickens more upon chilling.)
