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?
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!
