Easy Butterscotch Salted Caramel Budino

If you follow me on social media, then you may know that Disneyboi and I were recently on one of our frequent jaunts to London.

We always like to try new places to eat when we are down there and on this visit we happened upon a  new pizza place called NY Fold. Right in the heart of Soho, on Charing Cross Road, it promised the New York pizza experience in the UK. It’s owned by a pizza champ, well known in the states, called Bruno DiFabio

I remember loving pizza in New York when I’ve been there in the past, it’s flavour is like no pizza I had ever had in the UK - until now.

We both tried a couple of pizzas each, with some US beer, and the flavours were amazing. I tried one called a Juliet which had fig jam, prosciutto and balsamic glaze on it, plus mozzarella and gordonzola. It was divine. So was the Starry Hope I tried which was mashed meatballs, whipped ricotta, pesto Genovese and onions and mozzarella. The flavours were just like I remembered from America.

If you happen to be in London, and like pizza, I implore you to give this place a go. You will love the relaxed atmosphere as well as the brilliant pizzas. I can honestly say these were the best pizzas I had ever had in the UK.

You may be wondering where this all fits into this post and the picture at the top. Well, the menu had way more than pizza. You could get pastas too, focaccias and salads. Plus desserts.

You see where I am going…One was called Budino which I had never heard of before. We couldn’t manage desserts as we were too full (the slices of pizza were ginormous) but Budino stuck in my mind. On the menu it promised biscuit crumble, butterscotch pudding, caramel sauce, sea salt and Chantilly cream. I had to give this a go!

Looking at Budino on Wikipedia it tells me it is a sweet Italian dish, like a custard or pudding, thickened with cookies or cornflour. Flavours can vary too, but I liked the thought of the butterscotch with the chocolate oreo flavour.

So, last weekend I whipped up Budinos for our pudding. It is a cheat’s version, but so easy to do and easy on the eye too I think you will agree. You could make pudding from scratch, caramel sauce from scratch, but this is the short-cut version, for all of us who have busy lives.

I crushed up some Oreo cookies, whipped up some Butterscotch Angel Delight, layered on caramel sauce, sprinkled on sea salt and finished with thick luscious whipped cream. Oh yes, and more caramel and Oreos to garnish.

How much of everything you add is up to you. You can tweak the amounts of whatever ingredients you like most. I served mine in little jars, as you can see in the pics, but you could serve it in whatever you like.

Here’s how I made mine.

Cuisine:DessertCategory:PuddingYields:2 servings
Prep Time:Cook Time:Total Time:

  • 7 Oreo Cookies
  • 1 package of Butterscotch Angel Delight Pudding Mix
  • 300 ml milk (to make the pudding)
  • Shop bought caramel sauce
  • Double cream
  • Sea Salt
  1. Make your pudding – preferably with a mixer, this aerates it and makes it even thicker than normal. Leave it to beat for a good few minutes if using a stand mixer.
  2. Place the Oreos in a plastic food bag and crush with a rolling pin or other heavy object.
  3. Beat the double cream in a separate bowl until thickened.
  4. In the bottom of the jars, spoon in crushed Oreos, leaving just a small amount to sprinkle on top.
  5. Spoon half the butterscotch pudding on top of each layer of Oreos.
  6. Dollop some caramel sauce on top of this.
  7. Grind some sea salt over the top of this – amount is up to you.
  8. Spoon cream over the top, making sure it is thick and heaping!
  9. Drizzle more caramel sauce, grind more salt and sprinkle more Oreos on top.
  10. Stick your spoon in and enjoy!


  1. These sound amazing! Yum I would eat one up fast.

  2. Gotta love Angel Delight! Butterscotch was my favourite... You should try the new sourdough pizza place in Edinburgh, Civerinos, I think you might like it!

    1. Ooh, thanks for the recommendation - we are getting a meaty cow in Dundee now too!

  3. Yes please. Make mine up in a serving bowl!
