Creamy, velvety, delicious, and quick to make, pudding is the ultimate comfort dessert. Making this nostalgic treat in the Anyday is a time-saving way to get that ‘from scratch’ taste in the same amount of time as a boxed instant mix. Try three different flavors with this base recipe: chocolate, vanilla, and salted caramel. Serve this pudding warm or cold and top with cookies, whipped cream, sea salt, and more!
All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

½ cup (120ml) whole milk, or plant-based alternative
½ cup (120ml) heavy cream, or coconut milk
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
For chocolate pudding add:
⅓ cup (50g) dark or milk chocolate chips
⅛ teaspoon kosher salt
For vanilla pudding add:
1 teaspoon vanilla paste or extract
1 large egg yolk
1 pinch kosher salt
For salted caramel pudding add:
2 tablespoons dulce de leche
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
Combine all the ingredients in the Anyday and stir to thoroughly mix.
Cover with the lid (with the knob lifted) and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until the pudding gently rises. Stir halfway through the cooking time for optimal results. Note: Ensure it doesn't overflow. The pudding will continue to thicken as it cools.
Whisk the pudding until it thickens. Portion the warm pudding into serving cups and let it chill in the Anyday until it's ready to be enjoyed.
Serving suggestions & tips
Use butterscotch or peanut butter chips instead of chocolate.
Top cold pudding with fresh berries and whipped cream for a delicious and simple dessert.
Substitute vanilla for lemon, orange, or lime extract.
Instead of using extract, scrape out the seeds of a vanilla bean pod.
For an extra smooth texture, you can press the finished pudding through a fine mesh strainer.
For the vanilla pudding, we added egg yolks to create a luscious creamy pudding. Keep it vegetarian by removing the egg and turning it into sweet cream pudding.
Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
