  • Whisking constantly, cook over medium-high until mixture thickens and is bubbling, 8 to 12 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, whisking, 1 minute.

  • Remove pan from heat and pour mixture through sieve into bowl. Stir in butter and vanilla until combined.

  • Press plastic wrap directly against surface of pudding to prevent skin from forming and refrigerate 3 hours (or up to 3 days). To serve, whisk until smooth and divide among four small bowls.

I made chocolate pudding over the weekend. It was another recipe. I was looking for another one with eggs, w[filtered] milk and cream to make it richer. Your recipe sounds like exactly like it. Thanks!
