Lavender Vanilla Bean Pudding

For a grown-up twist on a childhood classic try it with flavors such as lavender and vanilla bean.


  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 2 lavender buds, crushed
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 egg yolks
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tbsp. cornstarch
  • ¼ tsp. fine sea salt


  1. Begin by splitting the vanilla bean lengthwise and using the back of your knife, scrape out the tiny beans.
