Dewar's Butterscotch Pudding with Chantilly Cream, Dark Chocolate and Ginger Madeleine

Delight your palate with our extravagant butterscotch pudding. This dessert gets its unique flavor from Dewar’s Scotch and Muscavado sugar, which is unrefined brown sugar with a strong molasses flavor. Topped with Chantilly cream and shaved bittersweet chocolate, this dessert finishes off with a soft and crunchy ginger crumble cake baked in a madeleine cookie mold! If you can't make it into Salty's during this year's festival, try our recipe adjusted for the home cook.

Dewar's Butterscotch Pudding with Chantilly Cream, Dark Chocolate and Ginger Madeleine

Serves 8

Butterscotch Pudding

4 cups whipping cream
1/2 cup Mascavado sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 cup corn starch
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cup whole milk
6 egg yolks
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
3 tablespoons Dewar's Scotch
6 tablespoons butter

  1. In a heavy bottom sauce pan combine whipping cream, sugars, starch and salt.
  2. In a separate bowl combine milk and egg yolks and whisk. Have vanilla, scotch and butter ready.
  3. Slowly bring the first mixture to a boil, whisking quickly and continuously. The mixture will get frothy but will lose the foam once it starts to thicken.
  4. Once it starts to bubble, continue to whisk for 2 minutes. Turn off the heat and quickly whisk in the egg-milk mixture.
  5. Turn the heat back on and bring the mixture back to a boil, whisking quickly and continuously.
  6. Once it is bubbling, turn off heat and whisk in vanilla, scotch and butter. Blend very well with an immersion blender (it will change color and turn lighter).
  7. Strain into 6-ounce serving containers and chill in an ice bath uncovered until cold.
  8. Remove containers from ice bath and refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight.
