Spoonful of pudding

This is my mom or maybe her mother's recipe but it's great and versatile. Please don't buy the powdered box stuff, you most likely have all the ingredients on hand to make it from scratch and believe me you can tell the difference.

Vanilla Pudding serves 6

1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons flour
2 cups milk
1 egg
pinch salt
1 Tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon good vanilla

Mix in your saucepan sugar, flour and 1/2 cup of milk. Then stir in the beaten egg and the rest of the milk and salt. Cook over low heat stirring constantly until thick. Then off the heat add the butter and vanilla. Pour into 6 ramekins and chill in fridge covered with plastic wrap pressed down so it doesn't form a skin.
1. Chocolate - add 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder with the flour, reduce the sugar to 1/4 cup and then stir in 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips with the vanilla
2. Butterscotch - with the vanilla add 1 tablespoon scotch and 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
3. Banana pudding keep the original recipe but layer a large bowl with vanilla wafers and sliced bananas then pour the pudding over.

Note: I know this is a horrible picture, but you try to make this not look like poo
