Dewar's Butterscotch Pudding with Chantilly Cream, Dark Chocolate and Ginger Madeleine
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
- In a heavy bottom sauce pan combine whipping cream, sugars, starch and salt.
- In a separate bowl combine milk and egg yolks and whisk. Have vanilla, scotch and butter ready.
- 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.
- Once it starts to bubble, continue to whisk for 2 minutes. Turn off the heat and quickly whisk in the egg-milk mixture.
- Turn the heat back on and bring the mixture back to a boil, whisking quickly and continuously.
- 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).
- Strain into 6-ounce serving containers and chill in an ice bath uncovered until cold.
- Remove containers from ice bath and refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight.
