Natillas (Lemon Pudding)

I just updated this recipe.  I tried making it a couple of months ago using the exact measurements I posted and realized I was way off on the vanilla.  There was very little flavor in it.  So I’ve played around with it and have determined a much better amount.  🙂

YUMMY!

Serves 6-8 people
Preparation Time: 5-8 minutes
Cooking Time: 5-8 minutes
Total Time: 10-16 minutes

Ingredients:

8 egg yolks  (use the whites for scrambled eggs OR Bake a Cake from scratch!)
4 tbsp corn starch
4 cups milk
4 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 – 2 tbsp vanilla (depending on how strong of flavor you’re looking for)
5 tsp grated lemon rind
In a medium sauce pan, combine the eggs and about half the milk (no need to be precise).  In a separate bowl, add the cornstarch and the rest of the milk and whisk until thoroughly mixed.  Add the cornstarch mixture to the saucepan.  Add the sugar and vanilla then bring to a boil.  Add the lemon rind. While stirring constantly, simmer the pudding until it thickens.  It won’t thicken past a certain point which is how I know it is done.
Either serve hot or cool in a fridge.  Stays good in fridge for around a week.
