packed brown sugar
egg yolks, beaten
Awesome- so super creamy! I added an extra tablespoon of cornstarch because the other reviews had me worried about the pudding setting up. I'm not sure if I really needed it but it turned out fabulous! The perfect comfort food in the middle of a South Dakota snowstorm! My husband snitched so much of it that I had to make another batch to have enough for our kids! :) Enjoy!
I was really looking forward to tasting the result of this recipe, because I live in a foreign country and butterscotch flavored anything cannot be found here. Unfortunately, I found the flavor very mild, with more of just a "sweet" taste than anything else. Mid-way through cooking, however, I tasted the milk/sugar mixture, just before putting in the egg, and before adding the vanilla. I actually thought that it tasted more like butterscotch at that point, than at the end. I think I will try this again, but I will make some changes. I will either increase the amount of brown sugar used in the recipe, or I will try using dark brown sugar instead of the light brown sugar that I used. Also, I think I will omit the vanilla.
Awsome. I have been looking for a good butterscotch pudding for a long time! The only change I made was to add a bit of butterscotch schnapps - I like it Really butterscotchy!
yum yum! Don't stir again after you finish stirring the butter in, or it will get grainy. I also added about a tablespoon of scotch whiskey for flavor- it is butterSCOTCH, after all.
This beats packaged butterscotch pudding! Really liked it and can't wait to fix it for my daughter and family when they come to Wyoming to visit. Butterscotch is her very favorite.
Excellent recipe. Use real butter and even better with slightly less sugar and only two egg yolks.
Much better than packaged pudding. Its worth it if you have the time and want to try it from scratch. Don't expect the overly strong, pre-processed taste. This butterscotch flavor is more subtle. I was a little paranoid about the tempering part but it turned out fine.
YUM! I wish I had used dark brown sugar but it still was a wonderful treat! Thanks for sharing.
