Butterscotch Self-Saucing Pudding

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Jewelies

We made this today as a treat after Sunday lunch and everyone loved it. Served with homemade icecream and my personal favourite, cream! This recipe is posted in Australian measurements so 1 tablespoons equals 20ml (or 4 teaspoons).

Oh my,,,this was delicious comfort food, better than the syrup sponge I thought it would be. The sponge was light and the sauce rich and butterscotchy!!! The only change I made was to use my gluten free flour mix and 1 teaspoon of baking powder, I didn't even have to alter the temp or timing to cater for the changes, it was perfect. Thank you for sharing.
