60g butter, melted
1¼ cups brown sugar
4 tablespoons golden syrup
1½ cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
⅔ cup whole milk
1 tablespoon cornflour
vanilla icecream and/or cream to serve


Preheat the oven to 170C and lightly grease a 26cm x 20cm baking dish.  Mix half the melted butter with ½ cup of the brown sugar and half the golden syrup. Sift in the flour and baking powder and stir in the milk. Stir to combine until almost smooth then spoon into the prepared baking dish.

Mix the cornflour to a smooth paste with ⅓ cup cold water. Put the remaining butter, brown sugar and golden syrup in a jug and add 1½ cups boiling water. Whisk in the cornflour paste and pour this mixture over the back of a serving spoon over the pudding.

Bake for 30-35 minutes until golden. Serve with vanilla icecream and/or cream.
