Caramel Sponge Pudding
( SERVES 6 )
1. Heat oven to 180 degC. Grease an ovenproof dish. Combine flour, sugar and raisins in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Pour butter and milk into the well and stir to combine into a batter. Spread this into prepared dish.
2. To make the caramel sauce, place butter in a saucepan over a low heat to melt. Add sugar and water and stir over a low heat until sugar has dissolved. Pour sauce slowly and carefully over the batter in the dish.
3. Bake for 40 minutes or until the mixture is firm in the centre. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
Tip: Pour the liquid caramel sauce over the back of a spoon, so as not to disturb the pudding batter as you pour.
