On September 19th, National Butterscotch Pudding Day offers a sweet taste of a wholesome and creamy dessert. 

Brown sugar and butter star in the recipes for butterscotch pudding. However, corn syrup, vanilla, and salt are also sometimes used. Butterscotch adds amazing flavor to items such as sauces, candies, and frostings. 

An 1848 newspaper offers the scoop on this yummy pudding. According to “Housewife’s Corner” and Masluk Cream Co., the real recipe for “making Doncaster butterscotch is one pound of butter, one pound of sugar and a quarter of a pound of treacle, boiled together.”

Enjoy butterscotch pudding on its own or use it in other recipes. The flavor goes well with graham cracker crusts for pies or layered in a trifle, too. Simply layer with chunks of pound cake and whipped cream. Add nuts or a caramel drizzle for texture and visual appeal.

Spike your pudding with bourbon or rum. Pudding shots are delicious little cocktails.
