  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius. Brush a 1.25 litre ovenproof dish with a little melted butter.
  • Put flour and brown sugar in a medium mixing bowl and stir to combine.
  • Put remaining butter, milk, egg and vanilla in a jug and beat with a fork until combined.
  • Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients. Pour in milk mixture, stir until smooth and well combined.
  • Spoon into prepared dish and smooth the top.
  • Put the extra sugar, malted milk powder and cornstarch in a small bowl and mix until well combined. Sprinkle evenly over the pudding mixture.

  • Bake for 45-50 minutes. Serve hot or warm with ice cream.
  • Additional Information

    I've said that the cream is optional because when I first made this recipe I didn't have any and thought that the end result tasted fabulous! The cream just adds an extra lusciousness to the sauce.
