Cooking with Confidently Living – Vermicelli Pudding Fail

I should have known when I burned the pancakes this morning that I should keep away from the stove.  But it’s Sunday and my usual cooking day and so I decided to try out a recipe I got from Jas. Townsend and Son for vermicelli pudding.  This recipe dates back to the 18th century  and it basically an old fashion Kugel.


I was pretty excited to try this out it seems simple enough and so I got my ingredients together and started to cook.

Unfortunately it was somewhat of a fail try and didn’t quite come together.

There were a few issues I think that caused this but it really did have a good taste.

After trying this out and thinking about it I would love to try this concept as a rice pudding which I think would have an amazing taste.

So what to see my screw up?  Watch the video here!


Want to see the professional’s make this watch Jas. Townsend’s Video here

and if you just want to try it yourself here is the recipe.


  • 4oz vermicelli noodles
  • 1 pint milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 egg yolks well beaten
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (that’s how much I ended up adding)
  • 4oz melted butter

Cook the noodle in the milk to soft then add the rest of the ingredients pour into a prepared pie tin and cook for about 1 hour at 350.

Good Luck!
