Fluffy Duff Pudding or Pie Filling

Rather an odd recipe but it is very good.  It is pudding with flecks of white fluff that kind of look like bits of marshmallow. You can serve it as a pudding in glass dishes or pile it into a baked pie shell. The recipe makes enough to fill a nine inch pie shell.

My great aunt gave the recipe to Mom in the 1940s and it is possible that it is known by other names. A search of the internet turned up nothing that resembled this recipe.


  • 1 package of pudding mix, the kind that needs to be cooked
  • 2 ½ cups cold milk
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 1 envelope of unflavored gelatin
  • ¼ cup of milk


Separate the egg. Put the egg white into a mixing bowl.

Add 2 ½ cups of milk to the pudding mix in a sauce pan and add the egg yolk to the mixture. Blend well. Cook as directed on the pudding package.

Add ¼ cup milk to the gelatin in a small bowl. Let stand 5 minutes. Add to the pudding mixture and mix well. Cool slightly.

Beat the egg white until stiff. Fold into the pudding.

Use as pudding or as a no bake pie filling.


The hand written recipe wasn’t very clear. I rewrote it from what I remembered.

I have used a cooked cornstarch pudding recipe instead of a packaged pudding mix and it worked well.

In my opinion chocolate, butterscotch and vanilla flavors are the best.

Use either a graham cracker crust or a standard pastry pie crust.
