Butterscotch Pudding (Tuesdays with Dorie)

Butterscotch Pudding
Real Butterscotch Pudding

For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection, Donna of Spatulas, Corkscrews & Suitcases chose Real Butterscotch Pudding on page 386 of Dorie's book, Baking: From My Home to Yours.

I made 1/2 the recipe, omitted the scotch, and doubled the vanilla.

I made it by hand with lots of whisking, and it was pretty easy. Dorie suggests using a food processor but a few people had difficulties with this technique in our last pudding adventure. I double sifted the cornstarch and salt before adding it to the egg mixture to make sure it was smooth.

Butterscotch Pudding
Topped with a scoop of whipped cream, this is a nice dessert! You can really taste the lightly caramelized light brown sugar mixture.

And the best news this week? Santa came to visit my librarian friend, Shannon and her husband Mike! Introducing Katherine Louise! She arrived December 21 and weighed almost 9 pounds!

Happy Hanukkah! Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! May you have a wonderful time with your friends and family this holiday season.

And check out the other Tuesdays with Dorie bakers to see their butterscotch creations!

I love your dishes! And the pudding looks delicious. I just used a whisk for mine this time, too. Much easier than the food processor. And what a great baby picture--I love that she's swaddled in the red blanket. =)

Beautiful little ramekins - I never thought butterscotch pudding would make an elegant dessert, but I'm seeing so many beautiful presentations today. Glad you liked it even without the Scotch.

Your pudding looks great! Did it actually taste good? I was worried about the flavors and all the butter. It just sounded like an odd combo to me.

How wonderful, both the baby, and your "sweet" skills! Happy Holidays!

I have been traveling non-stop since the beginning of the month, and just got home this past weekend. I've been catching up on my favorite blogs, and I discover that you have been baking up a veritable storm. Sky-high cakes, apple tarts and tarte tatin, and butterscotch pudding! I'm surprised all us bakers can actually walk (instead of waddling)!

What a spectacular presentation. The chocolate twigs are a lovely accent.

Steph said... [Reply to comment]

Amazing pictures! If I were to make this, I would've omitted the scotch too.

Liz said... [Reply to comment]

Your serving dishes are adorable! (And that baby's not bad looking, either.) :) Merry Christmas!

Nancy/n.o.e said... [Reply to comment]

You managed to make the pudding look so elegant! I'm looking forward to making this. Decision include: whether to use scotch or not and what dishes to put it in.

Lovely baby; so nice of you to give the little one a shout out!

Happy Holidays!

That baby is ADORABLE! I love the little red blanket she's swaddled in! The pudding looks great. Thanks for the tip on double sifting. When I make it, I will give it a shot.
