Skip the boxed mix – there’s no tradeoff of quality for speed in this luxurious single-serving pudding recipe. The microwave might have designed solely to make single servings of pudding, it works so well. You could leave out the egg yolk and use skim milk to make this into a skinnier (but still delicious) treat, but don’t skimp on that bit of butter stirred in at the end. It wouldn’t be nearly as good without it.
|1/4 cup light brown sugar||1 Tbsp. butter|
|2 tsp. cornstarch||1/4 tsp. vanilla|
|Pinch salt||1/2 cup milk|
|1 egg yolk|
In a microwavable bowl, whisk the sugar, cornstarch and salt together with a fork. Add the milk and stir to blend. Microwave on high for 1 minute, stir well with the fork, and microwave 1 more minute.
In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolk. Stir a tablespoon or two of the hot milk mixture into the yolk, then pour the yolk back into the larger container with the milk, whisking the whole time. Microwave for 30 seconds, then whisk well.
Stir in the butter and vanilla, stirring until the butter melts. Eat warm or cold.
