Butterscotch Pudding

I don't know about you, but I'm a pudding lover from way back. My mother used to make all kinds of puddings for dessert....even blancmange, which I actually liked! Talk about bland. Her custards were perfection. No holes, not watery, just creamy mouthfuls.
My favorite pudding, or should I say the one I make the most, is plain old tapioca (I remember in boarding school we called it fish eye pudding), but any pudding will do (except instant.). Even chocolate pudding, for which I posted a divine recipe HERE, and you know I'm not a chocolate lover, so you know this is ambrosial.

Well recently, Lori from Recipe girl posted a butterscotch pudding recipe and I made it immediately. It's creamy and delicious and so simple to make. When the mood strikes you, give this a try. Bet you have everything in your pantry to make it.

Butterscotch Pudding
From Recipe Girl

1 1/2  cups brown sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
3  cups whole milk
4 large egg yolks
2 tablespoons butter
unsweetened whipped cream, for serving

Whisk together the sugar, cornstarch and salt in a saucepan.  Pour in the milk and egg yolks; whisk to combine, and stir the together over medium heat.  Once it starts to boil, reduce heat and while stirring, cook until thickened. When it seems like it has a nice, thick texture for pudding- pull it off the heat and stir in the butter.
Spoon the pudding into small glasses or dishes and chill for at least 2 hours.  Top with whipped cream before serving.


  1. I love butterscoth flavour! The pudding must be very delicious.

  2. My mom too..not sure if it wasnt J-E-L-L-O though..I loved it!

  3. If you asked my husband what his favorite flavor of pudding would be, he'd say butterscotch for such. This sounds delicious.

  4. Although I am a die-hard chocolate lover, butterscotch is probably my most favorite pudding flavor! There's something about pudding in the winter also that just makes you feel cozy. Looking forward to trying this! Thanks, Barbara!

  5. Yum....Yum....Yum!!! it sounds absolutely delish Barbara! I'm such a bad blogger these past couple of years, but wanted to come by and say hi! I'm just finding Instagram so much easier than having to think of things to write about. I hope your 2017 will be wonderful!
    hugs from here...

  6. I love puddings. Barbara this look to die for !! Delicious!!

  7. Butterscotch rules and your pudding looks delicious, Barbara!

  8. I love custardy desserts - butterscotch pudding isn't something I grew up with but since I tried it a few years ago I have been hooked. I tend to add a slosh of actual scotch (or bourbon) to mine though.

  9. I just had a lovely butterscotch pudding at a local restaurant. How much nicer not to make from a box! (Though all I need is another recipe causing me to collect egg whites!)

  10. it is a very easy n simple recipe... I'll try it ... It'll be good dessert for a party...
