3 cups whole milk

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup sugar

10 tablespoons salted butter, plus melted butter for serving

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Spiced Sugar:

1 1/2 teaspoons sugar or to taste

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon or to taste

1 1/2 teaspoons freshly grated nutmeg or to taste


  1. For the pudding: Heat the milk, cream and sugar in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Heat until just barely simmering, then remove from the heat.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the 10 tablespoons butter in a medium pot. Sprinkle the flour evenly over the butter and cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture browns lightly and smells nutty, 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Gradually ladle the warm milk mixture into the pot, whisking constantly, until incorporated and the mixture comes to a visible simmer and thickens, 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. For the spiced sugar: Combine the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small bowl and stir. Set aside.
  6. Serve the pudding warm, drizzled with melted butter and a generous sprinkling of the spiced sugar.
