Basic Pudding: Blend sugar, flour and salt. Gradually add milk, mixing well. Cook and stir until
smooth, thickened and clear.
Variations: At this point, add any ingredients necessary for variations. Stir a little of
the pudding very slowly into beaten egg, then return to pudding. (If you heat the
egg too quickly, it will cook a little.)
Add butter and vanilla extract; mix well, and chill in the refrigerator.
