Kate Doran, cookery writer and creator of the really, really fabulous Little Loaf blog, has created a way better version of this childhood pud. Butterscotch Devil's Delight is a deliciously creamy, toffee dessert, and unlike its namesake, contains not a single artificial ingredient. Plus it includes a glug or two of whisky, making this a properly delicious, grown-up version.
Kate has just published her very first (of many, I've no doubt) cookbook, 'Homemade Memories: Childhood Treats with a Twist' (Orion, £18.99 hardback). It is chock-full of glorious recipes and gorgeous photographs; my copy is already decorated with multiple sticky notes as I've bookmarked recipe after recipe. All the classics are included and reinvented with style: Almond, honey and cinnamon fig rolls, Magnum-esque Chocolate-coated Ice Cream Bars and Chocolate Milk For Grown-Ups all feature. And as part of a blog hop to celebrate the publication of Homemade Memories, I was invited to try out this scrumptious Butterscotch Devil's Delight.
- This is a glorious pudding: light and silky, creamy, toffee with a gentle boozy kick
- Random fact: Butterscotch Delight is Simon Cowell's favourite pud. One bite of Kate's version and it will surely become yours too.
