Nothing says I love you like...

Puddings and winter go together like chocolate and PMS!

The colder and wetter it gets, the more I need hot, sticky, sweet puddings. I try to add something healthy like fruit, but it's the creamy sweetness I crave.

This pudding is so good, you can use any fruit, even soaked dry fruit or you can just make it plain and have it as a cake with custard or ice cream.

Call What you want Pudding

250ml Soft Butter
2 Eggs
250ml Castor Sugar
425ml Cake Flour
7ml Baking Powder
Salt

Cream the butter and the sugar.
Add the eggs, beating well after each addition.
Sift in the dry ingredients and blend well.
Place batter in a dish (I used a pie dish about 27cm diameter)
Add the topping of your choice.
I used a tin of pears, lightly pressed into the batter.
Bake for about 45 minutes at 180°C.

While it is baking make this wonderfully rich sauce

1 tin Evaporated Milk (or 250ml Cream)
250ml Sugar
5ml Vanilla Extract

Boil the ingredients together until sugar is melted.
Pour over the hot pudding.
If you are using tinned fruit, reduce the sugar by half, add the syrup from the tin and boil that together with the evaporated milk.
Serve hot.

That does sound good. I like that it is made with things that you are bound to have in the larder, so it can be thrown together at the last minute.

I just live simple, versatile, home-style puddings like this one. I know my kids are going to go nuts for it. Thanks for visiting my blog!

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
