I've been looking through old CH threads, and scouring online recipes in hopes of finding a butterscotch pudding that rivals the childhood memories of what my nana used to make. I am pretty sure it was a box mix, though most likely not instant.
My thoughts are that homemade things can beat their commercially produced counterparts, but some of the recipes I've seen don't look like they'll taste butterscotch-y, just sort of more caramel-y.
I'm not looking to use butterscotch chips, extracts, or schnapps. Here are some of the recipes I've been looking at, so I'm interested to see if anyone has made these, and if so, if they have the butterscotch taste I'm trying to re-create (and ultimately improve upon).
Thanks. Here are the recipes I'm contemplating:
