HOMEMADE MAPLE-BUTTERMILK PUDDING
11 January 2012
I had some buttermilk in the fridge.. and I also had some pure maple syrup in there. So, I decided to whack together a Maple-buttermilk pudding! I used just 1 large mixing bowl + 1 fork (to mix everything).. so it was minimal cleaning up, especially because I cleverly lined my baking tin in foil, muahahahaa!
Let me warn you – this is really sweet. I actually thought it was too sweet, so I entirely omitted the sugar in the recipe below (since I felt the maple syrup along is sweet enough). Baking this pudding makes the place smell AWESOME afterwards :)
Boil 1 cup maple syrup over moderate heat for about 6 minutes. Remove from heat, whisk in 3 tbsp of butter, then pour into a baking dish.
In a mixing bowl, whisk 1 cup flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt. Add in 1 egg, 1 egg yolk, 1/3 cup buttermilk, 2 tsp vanilla essence. Add 200g softened butter and beat until the batter is smooth.
Evenly dollop tablespoons of the batter on top of the maple syrup mixture that's already in the tin. Bake the pudding for 35 minutes, or until the top is nicely browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
