Butterscotch self-saucing pudding
(at time of publication)
Step 1 Preheat oven to 170°C. Lightly grease a 1-litre capacity baking dish.
Step 2 Sift flour into a large mixing bowl and add half the sugar. Stir to combine. Place milk, egg, spread and 1 tablespoon golden syrup in a jug. Whisk until well-combined.
Step 3 Gradually whisk milk mixture into dry ingredients until well-combined and smooth. Pour batter into prepared dish and use the back of a spoon to smooth surface. Sprinkle remaining sugar evenly over batter.
Step 4 Combine remaining golden syrup with water and stir until well-combined. Carefully pour mixture over pudding.
Step 5 Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden and set. Remove pudding from oven and let stand for 5 minutes before dusting with icing sugar. Serve with a dollop of yoghurt.
