I love how simply this homemade pudding comes together. I’ve made homemade pudding lots of times but this was the first time making it with sweetened condensed milk. It was just as delicious as my standard recipe that uses butter, sugar and vanilla.

    1. Hi Lisa,
      It’s just the way I have always made pudding. You can use cornstarch instead of flour, just use 1/2 of the amount of cornstarch. I hope you get the chance to try it.

  1. I don’t understand why cookies are put into banana pudding. That’s terrible. Why not simply just make pudding?
