Creamy Caramel Pudding

Looking through a few of my favourite blogs last night I found a Caramel Pudding  that Dana of Danalicious had cooked.  She found  the recipe on another blog  Smitten Kitchen. Smitten Kitchen  adjusted the recipe by cutting the sugar in half.  The original recipe can be found here on Food & Wine.

Who doesn't love caramel  and Dana's pudding looked so good I just had to make it. 

It is a very easy recipe with just a few ingredients.   The only tricky stage is the caramelizing of the sugar. It has to be watched closely so that it doesn't burn.

The changes I made were  minor.   I  didn't have whole milk so I used two cups coffee cream and two cups 2%.    And, one other adjustment.   I only added half the reserved milk/cornstarch mixer. It thickened up so quickly that the full amount wasn't needed.

 Moe loved this pudding.  But it wasn't quite sweet enough for me so I topped it with a little sweetened Creme Fraiche. The next time I will use the full two cups of sugar called for in the original recipe.

  3. Butterscotch pudding is a childhood favorite. I can't wait to give this a try! Beautiful photos, Ann -

  4. You've presented a lovely dessert in such a pretty way. My grandmother used to make a caramel pudding that I loved. Thanks for a very sweet memory, Ann.

  5. Ann, ton blog est un trésor.
    Tes recettes sont magnifiques.

  6. I love caramel. Seriously. I am so saving this recipe, and I really want to try making this. I've made caramel, once. It came out, but I was a nervous Nellie throughout. Here goes-- attempt #2. I'm glad you were honest about the sweetness, so I'm adding the whole sugar amount, too. Thanks!

  7. OMG! This sounds so wonderful. I can't wait to try this! I adore caramel. Love your photos!

  8. Ann, when I saw this as Dana's featured recipe on the Saturday Blog Showcase I drooled. Then I made a bookmark to try it soon. :)

    Both Dana's and your presentations are soo good looking! I haven't had Butterscotch Pudding in at least a million years (or so.) Thank you for sharing the tips and your changes.

    I hope to make it soon. ~m

    P.S. Love, love, love your cups and saucers ~ so elegant!
