I love pudding. Chocolate pudding, vanilla pudding, tapioca pudding, rice pudding, butterscotch pudding… you name it, I love it. I love pudding made from scratch. I love pudding that comes from a little cardboard box. And when I was a kid, I loved the pudding on my school lunch tray. So it should come as no surprise that I love this rich and creamy homemade butternut squash pudding—it’s pudding! Plus, it’s amazing.
Some of the best recipes I’ve created have come not from my own imagination, but from suggestions by friends. Remember the Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Spread? Alexis suggested it. Lemon Vanilla Tapioca Pudding? I wouldn’t have thought about it if Ruby hadn’t given me those tapioca pearls. Add this Butternut Squash Pudding to the list because it was totally not my idea. A friend of mine suggested it almost as a joke, but as we talked about it, we quickly realized that it would be delicious. And as soon as the name “butternutscotch pudding” was mentioned, I knew I had no choice but to create it.
The color and flavor of this rich, velvety pudding will remind you of butterscotch, but this is most definitely a butternut squash pudding. If you love to eat winter squash with butter and brown sugar, you will love this pudding. If you love pumpkin or sweet potato pie, you will love this pudding. If you love butterscotch or vanilla pudding, you will love this pudding. It’s absolutely delicious, it’s a fun and unique fall dessert, and it’s easy to make. Do it.
