This recipe for Homemade Eggnog Pudding couldn’t get much easier. With a festive flair, this pudding recipe is perfect for the holiday season.

As with most people around this time of year, I just love making tons of desserts! And, of course, I like to use seasonal flavors.

I haven’t tried making many things with eggnog in the past, so I thought, why not! So here is my favorite Eggnog Pudding! 

Creamy, delicious and has all the flavors of your favorite drink but in dessert form. We enjoy this for breakfast or dessert, it is great for both.

Some of my other favorite recipes using eggnog include Eggnog Cupcakes, Classic Eggnog and this delicious Eggnog Bread Pudding!

WHY THIS RECIPE WORKS:

  • With minimal ingredients this recipe whips up fast.
  • You can easily double this recipe to serve more people.
  • You can add some rum extract to really give it that “holiday flair”

This Eggnog Pudding Recipe is rich and decadent, serve it in glasses and top with cinnamon whipped cream if desired, this is what we always do and it’s so delicious.

This is also a wonderful recipe to make to use in other desserts like pie filling, parfaits, or even cookie cups! It is a very versatile recipe as it set’s up super nice.

My favorite way is to eat it with a spoon, or a shovel because I really just cannot resist this recipe as eggnog is one of my favorite flavors ever. 

I really don’t think that they should just put eggnog in the stores during the holiday seasons, thank goodness that I have a recipe to make it at home so I can enjoy anytime I want!

HOW TO MAKE EGGNOG PUDDING:

  1. Place sugar, cornstarch, salt, and cinnamon in a medium-sized pot.
  2. With a whisk, stir in the eggnog and egg yolks until combined.
  3. Set heat to medium and whisk constantly until pudding is thickened and it coats the back of a spoon, about 5-8 minutes. 
  4. Pour pudding into a medium-sized bowl, and place plastic wrap on top, touching the top of the pudding.
  5. Place in the fridge to set, 3 hours. 
  6. Divide among four small glasses, top with cinnamon whipped cream, and garnish with more ground cinnamon, both optional. Or, use in your favorite desserts.

WHAT CAN I MAKE WITH LEFTOVER EGG WHITES?

Many things! Meringue cookies, angel food cupcakes, or even whip yourself up an egg white omelette!

MORE IDEAS:

I could also see this pudding as a yummy dip for cookies or fruit! How pretty would a fun Christmas party table set up be with eggnog pudding in the center as a dip for all your festive cookies!

My Cinnamon Cream Cheese Cookies would go perfectly with this pudding as dippers, wow!

HOW TO STORE:

At the store you would normally see puddings stored at room temperature, but those are sealed so it is safe to keep them at room temperature.

This Eggnog Pudding is best stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator and best to be eaten within 3 days. Sometimes pudding will separate and get a little more liquidy the longer it sits.

This can also be frozen! You can make pudding pops of of these or you can place in an airtight container and place in your freezer and it will keep up to 3 months.

TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • You can easily double this recipe to serve more people.
  • This is great not just as pudding, but fillings for desserts as well, see some ideas above.
  • Eggnog Pudding can be frozen, see my tips above!
  • You can add some rum extract to make it taste a little boozy if you like.
  • Do not forget to place the plastic wrap over the top, this helps with a film from covering your pudding.

    So delicious! I just made this for our Christmas dinner for 4 and it is scrumptious! I had to substitute 1/4 cup all-purpose flour for the cornstarch because I had no cornstarch in the cabinet & I wasn’t going out in the snow, but it still came out perfectly πŸ™‚

  4. YUM, thanks so much for letting us know about the substitute!

    Update to my review. I made this again substituting 1/4 cup of monk fruit sugar for the white sugar and it was fantastic!

    We had this refreshing dessert after Christmas Eve dinner. Our family loved it, and it was super easy to make. I added a dash of nutmeg as it tastes so good with eggnog.

    Christmas 2021, I found this recipe on Pinterest. It is beyond amazing.
    I made it exactly as written and it was too sweet, but I made a second batch and reduced the sugar to just 1/4 Cup. It got rave reviews from everyone in my family. I would only note that you may want to adjust the amount of sugar depending on the brand of Eggnog you use. The Eggnog brand I used was already very sweet so I could safely reduce the sugar in the recipe. If you make this and serve it to guests, people will be begging you for the recipe.

    I found the information on how to freeze but do you follow the recipe and let it set in refrigerator for 3 hours and then freeze?
    I made this recipe last year and my sister loved it. Very light and not a heavy dessert

  15. 4 stars
    I added ginger snaps and whip cream on the top.

    I made this for our Christmas eve dessert. I reduced the sugar to 1/4 cup because the eggnog was quite sweet on its own. It was simple & delicious! Very beautiful with whipped cream cinnamon topping. My husband loved it.❀
