A pudding so simple to make it is hard to mess it up but tastes amazing! Dietetic? Not likely. Although you could use a lower fat ‘nog most likely but I had full octane to use up after I made a batch of Eggnog Quick Bread. Just avoid the ‘nog made with HFCS for best taste. The eggnog is the main flavor, so buy the best you can!
You can use rum instead of the extract, I went for the extract for the flavor but avoiding the alcohol so the kids and I could enjoy it!
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup cornstarch
- Pinch of kosher salt
- 3 cups eggnog
- 2 tsp rum extract
In a heavy medium saucepan whisk the dry ingredients together. Whisk in the eggnog and put over medium heat, whisking often. The pudding will thicken up quickly as it just starts to boil. Take off the heat and whisk in the rum extract.
Divide between 4 custard cups, chill thoroughly.
PS: And of course top liberally with whip cream!
