Tetley Tips:

  • This recipe can be doubled to serve a larger group. Or, use espresso-sized cups for a portion-controlled treat.
  • Unsweetened almond milk can be substituted for the cow’s milk. For a vegan option, you can also omit the egg yolk and butter.
  • The pudding can be prepared up to 1 day in advance.
