Rich and sweet pudding for all occasions! Really simple. NB: the photo is not mine. I forgot to take one before it was demolished!

  • - 250g butter
  • - 500g light brown sugar
  • - 190ml full fat milk
  • - 2 heaped tbsp plain flour
  • - EITHER: a ready made pastry case OR a pack of ready to roll/pre-rolled shortcrust pastry (in this case you will need a flan dish - approx 21cm)


    1. If you are using ready to roll or pre-rolled pastry: Line your pie dish and bake blind using greaseproof paper and baking beans. Once the pastry is cooked set aside to cool.
    2. For the filling: In a saucepan, melt the butter. Add the milk and sugar and stir until all dissolved. Whisk in the flour.
    3. Keep stirring until it begins to thicken and then reduce the heat. Cook on a low heat for 1 minute.
    4. Pour the mixture into your pastry case and allow to cool and set. This takes a good while hence it would be at its best to make the night before and give it overnight to completely set.
    5. Serve up with some freshly whipped cream or pouring cream, whichever you'd prefer! Good old school classic!
