preparing vanilla pudding.

Ingredients for Jell-O:

  • 2 packages (85 g – 3 oz) of Jell-O Vanilla Pudding and Pie Filling
  • 940 ml (31.78 oz) of whole milk
  • 2 egg yolks, XL
  • 2 egg whites, XL

Preparation of vanilla pudding:

Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites with an egg separator. Beat the egg whites with a handheld electric mixer until stiff. Rinse out the pan you’re using. (This helps keep the pudding from sticking.) Prepare the vanilla pudding as described on the packages, while continuously stirring. With the pudding still is on the stove top, add in the two egg yolks while stirring.

Remove the pudding from heat, pour it in a bowl. Add in the stiff egg whites. Mix it together with an electric handheld mixer until it is thoroughly worked into the pudding. The eggs will make the texture of the pudding lighter, almost like a mousse.

Fill the pudding in a ceramic or glass bowl and cover it with a cellophane wrap that has been rinsed under cold water. This will help eliminate the skin that can develop on the pudding’s surface. After the pudding has chilled in your refrigerator, remove the plastic wrap.

If you wish to give your pudding a decorative shape, try using a silicon fluted baking pan. (See below.) Wash it out with cold water and don’t dry it. Fill it with the pudding. Rinse your cellophane wrap with water and add it on top. After the pudding has had time to chill, take off the wrap. The pudding can now be easily removed from the mold and place on a plate.

You can serve your pudding with fresh strawberries or try it with Oma’s homemade Sweet Woodruff Jelly. A delicious combination! If you want to make the Vanilla Pudding from scratch click here.
