Makes sure you use dark brown sugar for this recipe. It gives the pudding its butterscotch flavor. It's a rich pudding, so portions are small. If you're in a hurry for pudding, let it cool 5 minutes and eat it warm. if you can wait, put some saran wrap directly on each pudding, so you don't get that dreaded "pudding skin" and refrigerate before serving.Source: Unknown
