I can only speak for my family but caramel is the queen of flavours when it comes to desserts, milkshakes, sauces, macarons… anything sweet really. So when I was thinking of making a dessert for the Hungry Family it was obvious that caramel would figure in there somewhere. Then I hit on an idea: instead of one lot of caramel, why not double it?

And as the cold winter weather has finally arrived in Sydney – much to my happiness – I thought a warming pudding would make a lovely treat for the family.

Boom – double caramel self-saucing pudding was born!

Growing up my mum used to make self-saucing pudding all the time and often it was caramel flavoured. These puddings are such a snap to make, use pantry ingrediets and don’t require a mixer. If you have a spoon, a bowl and an oven you CAN make a self-saucing pudding.

Golden syrup is the key to turning desserts such pudding into molten caramel-y goodness. I know it can be hard to find it some parts of the world. Perhaps treacle would work?

Serve this easy double caramel self-saucing pudding with vanilla ice-cream or cream and just try and stop at one serve #BetYouCant

In a small bowl stir together the extra self raising flour and brown sugar – set aside.

Preheat oven to 180C and spray a 1.5L glass or ceramic deep baking dish with non-stick baking spray.

In a large bowl mix together the flour and sugar with a silver spoon then whisk in the milk, egg and golden syrup.

Stir in the butterscotch chips then pour the batter into the baking dish.

Sprinkle the extra flour/sugar mix over the top then carefully tip the boiling water over the top of the pudding.

Place in oven and bake for 35 minutes.

Serve immediately.

    I think they find it hard to find golden syrup in America but they can always use maple syrup too 🙂

    This syrup is not hard to find in the US or you simply can order it. I am fortunate to live in an area where can I can get just about any ingredient. Looks delicious 🙂

    OMG!!! I love caramel!!! We always do the chocolate version too and have never seen a caramel version. My Father-in-law is coming over for Father’s Day this Sunday and he would love this (he’s not a big chocolate fan). I’m going to make it for him! Thanks for sharing 🙂
