With 3 egg yolks, butter and a generous amount of brown sugar, this is one of my favorite puddings, so why not SPLURGE!

Top Review by Pale Rose

The texture was slightly grainy, but that could have been my mistake. The reason for the 2 stars is that I was disappointed that this recipe did not taste like butterscotch. The flavor was all right... but it was more like a brown sugar pudding than a butterscotch pudding. Thanks anyway, out of here!
