1-1/2 C scalded milk (about 2 min. in the microwave)
1/2 C sugar
1/4 C flour
2 T butter
1 tsp. vanilla
With a whisk, cream sugar and eggs until thick and light yellow. Add scalded milk to egg mixture slowly while beating with whisk. Return mixture to the microwave for 2 minutes, whisking after 1 minute, until thickened. Add vanilla & butter. Stir well. To make coconut cream add 1 C shredded coconut while pudding is warm.
*I think 3 minutes may be better instead of the 2, but whisk after each minute. You may find you need more or less time depending on your microwave. I also like to make sure raw eggs get good and hot.
