Honeydukes Butterscotch Pudding

August 22, 2007 11:39 am

Because there haven’t been enough Harry Potter posts around here lately…

Cambridge restaurant offers an HP inspired pudding.

Pug and I went to Upstairs on the Square once and it was very nice — if rather more up-scale than we were expecting (slightly awkward, but like I said, it was very nice). I can’t vouch for this dish myself, but I think the story is awesome.

The article gives their recipe, but I have no idea what the non-dairy substitute for heavy cream would be. It also looks like a lot of work and suggests the use of a blowtorch.

I understand from a site called Vegan Ice Cream Blog that soy heavy cream exists. I haven’t tried any yet.

Iiiinteresting. The things they can do with soy never cease to amaze me.

Oh, blowtorch! We have one of those. =0) It’s for cooking, only. Promise! *wink wink*

Kitchen blowtorches are awesome. You can also use them to solder. 🙂

That pudding, though, looks like it would be sweet enough to caramelize *me*! So we obviously have to try it sometime (…obviously).

(Side note: I had completely forgotten the name of and location of that restaurant.)

Obviously, huh. Well, shoot, now I have to think about it seriously. I know about caramelizing sugar and I can separate eggs. As for scalding milk, a little research suggests that the point is probably just to warm it up without boiling. Or I hope so, ’cause I don’t think the soy enzymes will work the same way the milk enzymes will.

That was “Vegan Banana/Walnut Pudding”, before I fouled its HTML. Geez, a bit much wiki markup lately.
