Best Ever Vanilla Pudding is the best vanilla pudding I have ever had! Not only is it yummy, it was super easy to make! You can top this pudding with fresh fruit or eat it plain. Either way you eat it, I know you are going to smile when you eat it!
My mom recently had a surgery that requires her to eat soft food for awhile. When I saw this recipe in the Better Homes and Garden Magazine, I instantly knew I needed to make it for her.
This recipe did not disappoint! I could eat the whole batch by myself! The pudding is so rich and creamy! I have been daydreaming about it all day.
With love from my kitchen to yours,
