Since I cut dairy out of my diet last fall (almost a year ago!), I haven't had any pudding. I can't say that I missed it much (I'm just not that big on pudding), but I came across a fairy-food pudding recipe the other day which made me want pudding, so I figured I'd give it a try.
I didn't have any tapioca or arrowroot starch, so I used regular old corn starch instead. It took the utmost restraint not to crank the heat up to high because it took forever to boil I am pretty impatient, especially when it comes to dessert. I sweetened it with maple syrup (again, it was what I had).
Overall, the pudding was good, but I think next time I'll be making it sweeter.
