Today is National Butterscotch Day!

Do you like it?

Here's a recipe (of course)
***********************************************************************************

Butterscotch Bread Pudding with Bourbon and Pecans Ingredients:

3/4 cup light brown sugar
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup bourbon whiskey
8 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 quart half-and-half
2 cups pecan pieces
8 cups ½ inch Country White bread or Sourdough Bread cubes
Powdered sugar, for dusting


Directions:

Preheat: oven to 375 degrees. Butter a 9x13"baking dish.

To make the butterscotch sauce, combine the brown sugar, butter, vanilla extract, and bourbon in a small saucepan over medium heat. Simmer the mixture, stirring until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is smooth in consistency. Cool ½ cup and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, half-and-half, and the cooled butterscotch sauce. Fold in pecans and bread, transfer to the prepared dish, and cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake 30 minutes, uncover, and then bake an additional 10 minutes. Gently shake the pan to make sure the pudding has set.

Serve with remaining butterscotch sauce, warmed, and powdered sugar.

absolutely love panera bread and was thrilled when they built one here. however, this is not on my diet so i will have to pass, lol. looks yummy though and i did love butterscotch as a kid but not so much anymore. guess it's true your tastes change with age.

I wouldn't be able to have that recipe now, but when I am able to, I would tweak it a bit to make it more healthy and enjoy!

I don't like butterscotch at all, I love Panera Bread but around here they still call it St Louis Bread.

I don't like it as pudding, too intense. I do like an apple cinnamon cake that has butterscotch swirls in it.... just a little zing of sweetness....
