maple pudding

Mostly farm fresh pudding with our eggs, milk and maple...
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup cornstarch 
1/8 tsp salt
5 egg yolks, lightly beaten
2 1/2 cups whole milk

Whisk the maple syrup, cornstarch and salt together in a medium saucepan.  Add the yolks, then immediately, but gradually whisk in the milk.  Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently at first, then constantly as the mixture starts to thicken and begins to simmer, 8 to 10 minutes.  Once the mixture simmers, cook for 1 minute.  Pour into ramekins and place parchment on top, and refrigerate until cool.  

I have some friends who prefer not to use cornstarch but I haven't made it with alternate thickener (and we can purchase organic nonGMO cornstarch in bulk at our co-op).  Maybe something like arrowroot would work?  

This recipe makes 6 small ramekins of pudding. 


  1. This looks delicious! I will make it with arrowroot and let you know how it goes!
