Butterscotch Pudding



It’s school holidays, and I don’t know about you, but I feel like I’m living in the kitchen.  And while I love cooking, I’d rather be enjoying this time playing with my kids, going to the park, shooting bubbles with our new water pistols and trying out new craft activities.  But I do enjoy something sweet at the end of a long day of playing,  so this dessert is perfect.  It takes just minutes to prepare, is  a real hit with the kids and tastes so, so Butterscotchy!  Oh, and I double it to feed our family of 8.  Who says you can’t play and enjoy your desserts too?

Butterscotch Pudding


1 Cup Self-Raising Flour

3/4 Cup Sugar

60g Melted Buttter

1/2 Cup Milk


30g Butter, chopped

2 Tbl Golden Syrup

1 1/2 Cups Boiling Water


Preheat your oven to 180C.

Mix all of the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and pour into a greased oven-proof dish.

Mix the sauce ingredients together in a jug and pour over the top of the batter.  I pour the sauce over the back of a spoon to avoid making wells of sauce in the batter.

Bake for approx. 30 minutes or until it is golden on top and the cake appears cooked.

Perfect when served with ice-cream on the side!

About Rebekah

Hi, I'm Rebekah, a happily married mum of six who also happens to be a cooking and baking addict and new accidental blogger. I live in Rural Sout-East Queensland, about an hour and a half from Brisbane . I have a 16 year old son who is itching to learn to drive, a 9 year old daughter with Type 1 Diabetes who loves to play her violin and dance her way from one end of the house to the other, 7 year old twins, a son who loves cars, trucks and bike riding with his dad and his twin sister who loves to paint and draw her life and hang it on mummy's fridge. Then there is Little Miss 5, the happiest child I have ever met, very independent, and she dances and sings everywhere she goes, followed closely by her almost 3 year old sister who thinks she is the boss of everything and is a mixture of all of her siblings put together. To say life can be exhausting is an understatement, but we wouldn't have it any other way. Plate4Eight came about through my need to get organized in the kitchen. I no longer have time to go searching through cookbooks and folders for "that recipe we liked last week", and the more organized I am, the more time I have to spend with my family and experiment in the kitchen, which is my form of relaxation. So, if you're looking for something to have for dinner tonight, or just want to try something new, have a look around. I hope you find something you like.
