Blank Canvas Dessert: Buttermilk Pudding

It's good to have a few blank canvas dessert recipes in your repertoire. By blank canvas, I mean desserts that are easy to make, may be prepared in advance, and can be creatively added to. For example, these buttermilk puddings are delicious alone, but are effortlessly jazzed up with a caramel sauce, fresh fruit, syrups, candies, or just about anything that floats your fancy! For a perfect Halloween dessert, use melted chocolate to give these individual puddings ghost faces or spider webs. With this dessert the possibilities are endless, so get the recipe,
