Homemade Butterscotch Pudding
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Cook: 10 min. + chilling
I was really excited about trying this recipe. It really was not very butterscotch flavored. It was grainy even though I followed the directions exactly. Will not make this again.
Add a little bit of milk to get it smooth, then add the rest. Microwave first for 4 minutes. Whisk and then add another 2 minutes and whisk again. Microwave for a little longer to get to your desired consistency. Add butter and vanilla, then whisk again for a good 30 seconds to make it lighter.
My husband found this recipe and wanted me to make it. I did. We were not impressed with the so called butterscotch flavor. I will use another recipe I have from the 30's. Better flavor in that one and tastes like butterscotch.
This recipe is very similar to my Grandma's butterscotch pie recipe. Yes, it is rich but the whole family fought over it at the reunions. I usually add the yolks at the beginning letting them warm up with the milk and brown sugar. My recipe calls for 1 c. dark brown sugar and no white sugar. When thickened put it in a pre-baked crust and top with meringue to brown... wonderful!
How can you call this butterscotch? It simply tastes like milk and nutmeg! A total disappointment...and waste of time and ingredients..It was creamy..like pure thickened cream with nutmeg in it..
I made it as written, but when I added the yolk it became chunky. Overall this pudding was not creamy smooth. Taste was ok but would not make again.
I made the pudding but cut back on the sugar as it seemed to be too much for me and did not use nutmeg. Also, I make my puddings using the microwave. I mix sugar, cornstarch together then add milk in which I have wisked in the egg/s. Place in a microwave safe large measuring cup and cook about 5 minutes. Take it out of microwave and whisk it really well then place back into the microwave until the consistency that one likes. Much easier than standing over the stove stirring pudding so it doesn't burn or stick. Always turns out good and soooooo easy.

I made this recipe with the decreased nutmeg and my husband loved it. I have made several time now and each time he loves it more. Highly recommend!
