The Bottom Line: September 19th is National Butterscotch Pudding Day!
The Full Story:
September 19th is National Butterscotch Pudding Day!Although nobody knows the exact origins of Butterscotch Pudding Day, records show that this dessert has been around since at least 1848. And that makes sense – it’s pretty easy to make. The primary ingredients in the making of butterscotch are brown sugar and butter. However, corn syrup, vanilla and salt are also sometimes used.
In an 1848 newspaper, according to “Housewife’s Corner” and Masluk Cream Co., the real recipe for “making Doncaster butterscotch is one pound of butter, one pound of sugar and a quarter of a pound of treacle, boiled together.” In 1855 F. K. Robinson’s “Glossary of Yorkshire Words,” explained ‘Butterscot’ as “a treacle ball with an amalgamation of butter in it.”
