Whip up this easy self-saucing butterscotch pudding from ingredients you already have in your pantry.
This pudding is so easy to whip up in a flash: all the ingredients are basic pantry staples that can be thrown together when you want a dessert (without going out to buy extra ingredients).
But don’t be fooled, this is one delicious dish!
This pudding makes a great winter dessert, perfect for after the Sunday roast.
For something a little different, add some chopped nuts to the batter.
I like to keep some long-life cream in the pantry for emergency cooking. You can get it in the supermarket in 200ml tetra-packs. It sells out quickly though, so if you see it, pick up a couple for the pantry.
They really come in handy if you like to cook with cream or need some emergency cream for a last-minute dessert.
