egg yolks in pudding

I've got two recipes for vanilla pudding from scratch. The only difference in them is the number of egg yolks to use. One calls for one and the other calls for three. What difference do the additional egg yolks make in a pudding?

  • The additional egg yolks make it richer. It of course means more cholesterol. If you are going to make home made pudding I would go ahead and do the one with more yolks. I remember the rich and creaming pudding my mom use to make. Oh and the lemon meringue pie. Those were the days.
