  • Whisk in the egg yolks and the rest of the milk.
  • Place the saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring frequently, until mixture begins to bubble, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and, using a rubber spatula, stir constantly, scraping the bottom and sides of the pan, until the pudding thickens and makes ribbons when drizzled over the surface; about 4 minutes.
  • Remove from heat; stir in butter and vanilla extract. Continue to stir until the butter is melted and well incorporated.
