National Butterscotch Pudding Day

We are lucky enough to have National Butterscotch Pudding Day right after National Cheeseburger Day.  What better follow up to the all-American delight than that?  So, after we’ve cooled off our commercial charbroilers, it’s time to take out the mixing bowls and get to work.

Butterscotch is a sublime mix of brown sugar and butter.  Sometimes, you will see molasses added into the mix, as well as vanilla, corn syrup, salt, and a few other ingredients.

Candy-making is a finicky art, so it’s always best to take a swing at some of the existing recipes before trying to create your own. Here are some recipes for butterscotch pudding from a few of the more popular food sites:

Food Network’s Butterscotch Pudding Recipe

Kelly’s Butterscotch Pudding from Allrecipes

Butterscotch Pudding on Epicurious (first published by Bon Appetit)

Here are some restaurants from around the country that serve butterscotch pudding.  It’s highly commendable that these restaurants have butterscotch budding on their menus.  It makes a good break away from ice cream and milkshake machines.

La Luce, Orlando, FL

Finz Seafood and Grill, Salem, MA

Banker’s Hill Bar and Restaurant, San Diego, CA

Stampede 66, Dallas, TX

Spritzburger, Chicago, IL

It doesn’t matter whether you’re serving seafood, pizza, steaks, or burgers, butterscotch pudding makes a fine addition to the menu.  You can elevate it by putting in some extras or let it stand on its own as a sweet, delicious dessert.
