Before I tell you how to make Golden Syrup Self Saucing Pudding from scratch, I ought to tell you who this awesome recipe is from.

My good friend Shelley (who also writes a lot of my baby content on this site) is an amazing cook.


  1. In a small saucepan melt 60 grams of the butter and the milk and stir until the butter is melted. Take off the heat.

  2. Combine the self raising flour and caster sugar in a small oven-proof dish.

  3. Pour the milk and butter mixture into the flour and sugar and slowly combine well with a fork until it is lump free and looks like a yummy cake mix.

  4. Stir in a tablespoon of the Golden Syrup.

  5. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the brown sugar over the mixture, then drizzle the remaining two tablespoons of syrup over the top. Add the rest of the butter.

  6. Pour the boiling water over the back of a large spoon to cover the entire mixture.

  7. Bake in the oven at 160 degrees (fanforced) or 180 degrees (prehistoric) for 30 – 40 minutes. Your saucy, bubbly, hot, sweet cake is now ready to gobble. Enjoy!

I adore going to her house – she cooks all the time – all that delicious style comfort food that is perfect in the Winter months.  This Golden Syrup Self Saucing Pudding is what she has made for me a ton of times, and I’ve finally gotten her to part with her recipe.

It is so easy and yummy!
