DIRECTIONS

  • Set oven at 350 deg F/180 deg Celsius.
  • Grease a fairly deep oven dish (about 9 x 9 x 3 inches, more or less): this is quite a large dessert.
  • Using an electric mixer, whisk butter a little until light and fluffy.
  • Add the sugar, and cream the two together well, until pale and creamy.
  • Add the beaten eggs in three batches, beating well after each addition: you want a pale, creamy mixture. Add the vanilla during this process.
  • Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • Add dry ingredients alternately with the buttermilk to the butter mixture, whisking lightly after each addition. Beat until you have a smooth batter.
  • Ladle into prepared greased oven dish.
  • Bake about 45 - 55 minutes, until the pudding is slightly puffy and golden on top. It will crack -- it's not a fault, this is a rustic dessert.
  • As it cools, it will sink slightly -- that's normal.
  • Take out of oven and strew over the cinnamon-sugar you have prepared.
  • Serve hot or lukewarm, as is, or with warm custard or ice-cream. It is also delicious with fruit syrups or maple syrup.
