Salted caramel budino with hazelnut praline

Based on 10 ratings

"A rich and creamy Italian dessert, budino is a treat for more than one reason. It usually includes a few different components and therefore takes some time to both prepare and clean up after—but don’t let that scare you off. Set aside some time and prepare it for a special evening or celebration. If you find the pudding isn’t smooth enough, run it through the sieve again."

  • Step 4/7

    In a liquid measuring cup, combine remaining heavy cream and whole milk. In a pot, add maple syrup, brown sugar, water, and remaining salt and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Cook for about 8 min. or until caramelized. Remove from the heat and slowly whisk in heavy cream-milk mixture. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, egg yolks, and starch. While whisking, slowly add maple syrup-cream mixture to the egg-cornstarch mixture. Transfer the pudding back to the pot and set over medium heat, whisking constantly until a thick pudding forms, approx. 5 min. Strain the mixture through a fine sieve into a bowl, then cover tightly with plastic wrap (pressing the plastic directly onto the pudding to stop a skin from forming) and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
