Vanilla, just like salt acts as a flavour enhancer in desserts. Make sure you cook the pudding long enough until it thickens before setting it up in the fridge. This will prevent the pudding from turning soupy in texture. Ideally, the pudding should set up very soon after removed from the stove even without putting it in the fridge. Adding cornstarch to pudding can also help in getting the rich, thick texture. You can store this dessert in the fridge for several days once it is made with the meringue. You can even make it the night before and let it refrigerate to set overnight and then make the topping the morning before serving it.
