We had friends over for dinner on the weekend and I made this pudding which I haven't made for years...forgot how good it tastes and simple it is to make. The pic shows the remains of the pudding after everyone had gone home (I think they would have thought I was a little weird if I started snapping photos of dessert while they were trying to dish up!!)
Butterscotch Self-Saucing Pudding
1 1/4 cup self-raising flour
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
100g butter, melted
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
Extra 1 cup loosley packed brown sugar
1/3 cup malted milk drinking powder
1 Tbs cornflour
1 1/2 cups boiling water
1/2 cup cream
Place flour and brown sugar into a mixing bowl and mix with a wooden spoon to combine. Pour butter, milk, egg and vanilla essence into a jug and beat with a fork until combined.
Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients. Pour in the combined milk mixture and beat with a wooden spoon until the mixture is smooth and well combined.
Spoon the mixture into a greased 1.25L ovenproof dish.
Put extra brown sugar, malted milk powder and cornflour in a small bowl and mix with a fork until well combined. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the pudding mixture.
Place the boiling water in a jug, add the cream and stir to combine. Carefully pour the cream mixture over the back of a large metal spoon onto the brown sugar mixture. Bake in moderate oven for 45-50 minutes.
