Strawberry Pudding from JensFavoriteCookies.comMe: I’m going to make strawberry pudding.
Robb: Does that even exist?
Me:  It will when I make it.

The next day…

Me: Try this strawberry pudding.
Robb:  This is really good!
Me: You should never doubt me.

I don’t know how many times I have to tell that man that if he would just agree with me, he would be right a lot more often.

Although, to be fair, I’ve never actually eaten strawberry pudding before.  Or even heard of strawberry pudding.  But strawberries are in season, so I figured it was worth a try.  It tasted good in my imagination.

As usual, The Fruitarian {who is celebrating his 15th birthday this week} was hovering the moment I pulled the strawberries from the fridge.  I caught him staring at them during breakfast.  I thought he might drool on himself.

Fruitarian: Can I have a strawberry?  Can I have strawberry pudding? Can I have some of these cut strawberries?
Me: Wait until I’m done, then you can have it all.
Fruitarian: But…!  But…!  {grunts in frustration}

Do you remember how hard I had to work to keep him away from the bananas so I could make Banana Pudding?

 When it was all said and done, the whole family was pleased with this dessert.  The berry flavor is present, but not overwhelming, and the pudding is extremely creamy and delicious.

It was a satisfying day for everyone.  For the Fruitarian because he got to eat Strawberry Pudding with extra berries on top.  For Robb because he got to try a new dessert that even a picky eater can love.  And for me, because I get to be right.

As usual.

A creamy pudding made with fresh strawberries.
Recipe type: Pudding
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 lb. strawberries
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 T. + ½ cup sugar
  • 3 T. cornstarch
  • dash salt
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 T. butter
Instructions
  1. Dice berries and remove stems. Place in a bowl and sprinkle with about 1 T. sugar. Let sit for about an hour to steep.
  2. Place 1 cup of the diced berries in a saucepan with milk and cream. Heat, stirring occasionally, until almost boiling. Use a potato masher to mash berries. There should still be some chunks.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix ½ cup sugar with cornstarch and salt. Slowly add to hot cream, stirring.
  4. In a small dish, lightly beat egg yolks. Once cream mixture comes to a boil, add a small amount of cream (about ½ cup) to the yolks, and stir. Quickly return tempered egg yolks to the saucepan, stirring as you do.
  5. Let mixture come to a boil, and boil 1-2 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat, and add vanilla and butter, and stir in.
  7. Pour pudding into ramekins or other small dishes. Cover with plastic wrap, being sure that the plastic touches the pudding, to avoid a pudding skin. Chill for 2-3 hours.
  8. Top cooled pudding with remaining diced berries, and whipped cream, if desired.
