  • Whisk in the heavy cream and sugar. Stir continually while slowly increasing the heat to medium-high.

  • Cover and let cool in the refrigerator until and serve when completely cooled and set, at least 1 hour.



While the pudding is cooling, place plastic wrap directly onto the top of the pudding in order to prevent a skin from forming. The plastic wrap should touch the top of the pudding directly.
