Vanilla pudding is a classic dessert. Delicious on its own, paired with ice cream or pie, or topped with crushed cookies, candies, or fruit, vanilla pudding is sure to please every taste bud. Instant pudding is okay, but homemade is the absolute best! This recipe is one of my family's favorites. It's simple, incredibly easy to make, and only requires five ingredients.
