Australian Hasty Pudding

Taken from the Epicure section of The Age newspaper, which in turn was taken from a grandmothers recipe book, this is an absolutely fast and delicious dessert best served with cream or ice-cream. You can substitute the golden syrup for some other sugar syrup like honey or maple but it will be a LOT sweeter.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 180°C.
  • Melt butter, add sugar and egg. Beat briskly then add flour, and then milk. Beat to batter consistency.
  • Pour golden syrup into a buttered/greased small pie dish (my Granny used an old enamel baking dish that holds about two cups of liquid - it's important the dish is not too shallow and the batter not spread too thinly) and allow to settle, then pour batter on top of golden syrup.
  • Bake for about 25-30 minutes. It should have a crisp, golden crust (almost biscuit-like) and a soggy bottom. Spoon straight from pie dish into bowls and serve with ice-cream or cream and a little extra golden syrup.
