caramel

  • 50g unsalted butter, chopped
  • 1½ cups (265g) brown sugar
  • 1½ cups (375ml) water
  1. Preheat oven to 160°C (325°F). Lightly grease a 6-cup-capacity (1.5-litre) ovenproof baking dish. Place the sugar, flour, milk, butter, vanilla and eggs in a large bowl and mix to combine. 
  2. Spoon the mixture into the prepared dish. Set aside. 
  3. To make the caramel, place the butter, sugar and water in a small saucepan over high heat. Bring to the boil, stirring constantly to dissolve the sugar. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool slightly. Pour the caramel over the back of a spoon to drizzle over the pudding mixture.

tips + tricks

+ It’s important to gradually pour the caramel over the batter to ensure it sits on top of the batter. As the pudding cooks, the caramel will start to sink, creating the sauce. 

+ You can make six individual puddings using 6 x 1-cup-capacity (250ml) ovenproof baking dishes. Place on an oven tray and cook for 20 minutes or until cooked through.
