I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE butterscotch pudding and you may not know just how easy it is to make. It takes just ten minutes to make and only uses five ingredients, items you probably already have on hand. You can make it with low fat milk or whole milk, just not fat-free milk. I usually make mine with 1% low fat milk but I had some whole milk left over this week from making my chicken pot pie, and homemade pudding is richer tasting when made with whole milk. Of course it won’t be as low in fat but I will take butterscotch pudding any way I can.
I use light brown sugar and remember that cornstarch is not the same as corn flour. Cornstarch is very powdery and is the perfect thickener for homemade pudding. There is no reason to ever buy a box of pudding mix filled with ingredients you can’t pronounce. Make your own healthier homemade butterscotch pudding. It’s so yummy good!

Since I use no cows milk will it be OK to use either almond, soy or coconut milk?
I’m sorry I don’t know. I only make this pudding with milk so you may need to research or just try it out.
I have a milk allergy and I’ve used soy milk instead of regular milk before when using “boxed pudding” (sorry Jenny!) sometimes it turns out, and then other times it simply won’t set, depending on the brand and flavor.
I’ve also used soy milk when making from scratch and often times I do get good results. I think I will give this a try this weekend, maybe even use it as a pie filling! Good luck BeaD and thanks for sharing Jenny!
Thanks for helping out.
