Notes

I am lazy and don’t like to stir the pudding while it cooks, so I mix all but the eggs and put it in the microwave. Place a piece of was paper on top. When it starts to boil, I take it out and add the eggs as directed, then return it to the microwave for a few more minutes. Add butter and vanilla. Stir well or it will be lumpy.
