The History of Vanilla Pudding

Puddings have been around for centuries, with the earliest recorded pudding recipes dating back to the 16th century. In the United States, puddings were a common dessert in the colonial era, and they were often made with ingredients like milk, eggs, sugar, and spices.

Vanilla pudding as we know it today didn't become popular until the 19th century, when the industrial revolution made it easier to mass-produce ingredients like cornstarch and vanilla extract. The popularity of packaged pudding mixes in the mid-20th century also helped to make vanilla pudding a household staple.

How Vanilla Pudding is Made

Vanilla pudding is made by combining milk, sugar, cornstarch, and vanilla extract in a saucepan and heating the mixture over medium heat until it thickens. The mixture is then poured into individual cups or a large bowl and chilled until it's set.

Many people also like to add other ingredients to their vanilla pudding, such as whipped cream, fruit, or chocolate chips. And for those who prefer a dairy-free option, vanilla pudding can also be made with alternative milks like almond or coconut milk.
