Salted Butterscotch Pudding

This old-fashioned dessert never goes out of style and this version tastes better and richer than ever.

Serves: 4 Preparation: 10 mins Cook Time: 10 mins (+3 hours chilling time)



  1. In saucepan, combine brown sugar, cornstarch and salt; set aside. Whisk together cream, molasses and egg yolks until blended; stir into saucepan.
  2. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, for 8 to 10 minutes or until boiling and thickened. Boil for 1 minute.
  3. Strain through fine-meshed sieve into bowl. Stir in butter and vanilla.
  4. Divide among 4 dessert cups; cover with plastic wrap placed directly on surface of pudding to prevent skin from forming. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours or up to 2 days.
  5. Before serving, whip cream until stiff peaks start to form. Top each pudding cup with whipped cream; drizzle with caramel sauce. Sprinkle with sea salt.
