Butterscotch Pudding Recipe

Chef Kieron’s homemade butterscotch pudding recipe is sweet, salty and just plain delicious. Treat yourself with this delightful dessert!

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 3/4 stick (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 1/4 cups whole milk
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • Cinnamon and marshmallows (optional)
Instructions:
  1. In a saucepan, heat cream over moderately low heat until warm.
  2. While cream is heating, in a heavy saucepan melt butter over moderate heat and stir in brown sugar. Cook sugar mixture, stirring occasionally, until mixture is bubbling all over and appears smooth, about 5 minutes.
  3. Carefully add warm cream (mixture will bubble and steam) and cook over moderately low heat, stirring, until sugar mixture is dissolved, about 1 minute. Remove pan from heat.
  4. In a large metal bowl or in the top of a double boiler, whisk together milk, yolks, cornstarch, and salt.
  5. Add warm butterscotch mixture in a slow stream, whisking constantly, and set bowl or top of double boiler over a saucepan of simmering water.
  6. Cook pudding, whisking constantly, 10 minutes, or until it begins to thicken.
  7. Cover bowl or top of double boiler and cook pudding, whisking occasionally, 10 minutes more.
  8. Remove bowl or top of double boiler from pan and cool, whisking occasionally, cover the mixture with a layer of saran wrap and place in the fridge.
  9. Dust lightly with cinnamon and garnish with a marshmallow (optional).
