This butterscotch pudding recipe, adapted from a recipe created by chef Scott Warner of Bistro Don Giovanni in Napa and Tamalpie Pizza in Mill Valley, California, is no joke. One of the best we’ve had, period. It’s crazy rich, so a little goes a very long way. The secret is in the ingredients; top-shelf ingredients makes a top-shelf dessert. So, don’t substitute the muscovado sugar; its flavor elevates the whole dish. Serve this pudding in fluted glasses or ramekins, with or without garnishes like chocolate sauce (get a recipe below), whipped cream, and pumpkin-seed brittle (see recipe link in the notes section), and fall in love.
Pour the pudding into 6 glasses or ramekins, cover each with plastic wrap so that the wrap contacts the entire surface of the pudding, and refrigerate until completely cool.
