Budino is a sweet Italian dish, usually rich and creamy like a custard or pudding. Like the English word "pudding", "budino" originally referred to a type of medieval sausage.[1] Budino is the Italian word for custard or pudding.[2] It can be thickened with cornstarch or cookies to make it more like a soufflé or ganache, and it can be sauced with various flavors, including chocolate, caramel, apple, and butterscotch.[3]
