[Quick shameless plug: vote here for my Chocolate Bacon Cupcakes to win Iron Cupcake:Earth!]
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! It's been a pretty hectic couple of weeks for me, so I ended up having to skip last week's Tuesdays with Dorie :( Since the TWD rules are a little more lenient this month, I decided to make butterscotch pudding for this week instead of the cheesecake. (Sorry Anne, but I'll definitely make it soon!) The butterscotch pudding was chosen for last week by Donna of Spatulas, Corkscrews & Suitcases.
Dorie recommends using a single malt scotch in this recipe, but I didn't. We actually have a bottle of Macallan (aka "the Single Malt against which all others must be judged"), but since it was a wedding present for A., I had to get this little bottle of Dewar's (blended malt) instead to use in the pudding. Whatever ;)
I broke out the food processor for this pudding, even though I had successfully used the immersion blender for the chocolate pudding. I did it mainly because there seemed to be a bunch of steps and back-and-forth between the stovetop and the FP, which is also the reason there aren't many pictures of this process;)
I was actually very excited and intrigued to taste this pudding, because I had never realized that true butterscotch had, well, scotch in it! I really liked the rich flavor of this pudding, and I could definitely taste the scotch in there. Highly recommended ;)
Check out Donna's blog for the recipe, and don't forget to check out the rest of the TWD bakers this week (the majority of whom are probably feasting on delicious cheesecake!)
