Wholesome Butterscotch Pudding

Now that I retrenched, I am trying to develop more recipes to replace the ones I eliminated on my blog. I just made this pudding, and it is To Die For!

Butterscotch Pudding - 8 servings

1 quart raw goat milk (or whole milk)
1/3 cup non-GMO cornstarch ( or arrowroot powder)
1 cup Rapadura (or Organic Sucanat)
1/4 teaspoon unrefined sea salt (or sea salt)
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon butter
3 eggs

Beat the eggs very well.

In a microwave-proof bowl (I use my 2-quart Pyrex measuring bowl) combine the milk, cornstarch, Rapadura, salt and vanilla extract. Whisk together thoroughly.

Place the bowl of mixture in your microwave oven. Process on "high" for 2 minutes. Remove from the microwave and whisk well. Add the butter.

Then, do it again, and keep doing it 1 minute at a time, whisking well in between, until the pudding thickens and starts to poof up a little bit.

Immediately pour about 1/4 cup of the hot pudding into the eggs and whisk it together very well.

Pour the egg mixture back into the pudding and whisk that together thoroughly.

Allow it to cool for at least 20 minutes before serving or store it in your refrigerator.


  1. Sounds delish! But,you may want to research the dangers of using the microwave ;)

    1. Hi Anon. I am aware of that controversy. The jury is still out. The troubling thing to me is that when I read an article online about the dangers of microwave cooking, I'll read along and read along and there is much plausible information, but then they'll insert something completely bogus, which then throws doubt on the veracity of the whole article. Fortunately, we eat deserts rarely, and I almost never cook anything in our microwave! This pudding can also be made on the stove top, of course, doing a lot of careful constant stirring. Most things are much better NOT cooked in the microwave, but I have found I actually can cook the pudding more carefully and gently in the microwave. The pudding is smoother and better tasting than the stove top method.

  2. I dont even have a microwave so I dont have to worry about the dangers, real or imagined.
    Thanks for the recipe.

  3. Your recipe is very tempting. Those are my kind of treats.

    And regrading the microwave issue. We still debating about it at home. I use the timer mostly. :)

    The is a nice article about the hidden hazards at the Mercola website:

    Have a nice weekend.


    1. Thank you, Mely. That is a good article. There are some mistakes in it, but overall, that is the best one I've seen. As I said, I rarely actually cook anything in the microwave. Perhaps I'll even use it less now, but I can't get rid of it. My husband would be very sad. Sometimes he likes to warm up something in it, so I'm not going to get rid of it. I would, of course, never use paper or plastic to heat food in a microwave! I like the timer too. ;) That way, I have one on the stove and an extra to use. Thank you!
