Dulce de Leche Pudding with Coconut

Total Time:
2 hr 30 min
20 min
2 hr
10 min

about 2 1/2 cups

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup prepared dulce de leche
  • 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • Bring 1 cup of the milk to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium heat.

  • Meanwhile, combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk in the remaining 1 cup milk a little at a time to avoid lumps, then whisk in the egg.

  • When the milk is boiling, remove the saucepan from the heat and gradually whisk in the sugar-milk mixture, stirring constantly. Return to medium-low heat and cook, whisking constantly, until the pudding comes to a simmer and is thick and creamy, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in the butter and vanilla until smooth. Stir in the dulce de leche.

  • Divide the half of the pudding among 4 4-ounce ramekins or glasses. Then sprinkle each with 2 tablespoons of coconut and top each with the remaining pudding. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until fully set, about 2 hours.

This pudding can also make 6 smaller servings. Just add an extra 4 tablespoons of coconut to your ingredient list.
