18 Oct Granadilla Self-Saucing Pudding
I just love the simplicity of a self-saucing pudding, and this Granadilla one is my favourite! It’s made with Lancewood’s Low Fat Granadilla Yoghurt, which adds a delicious fruity tang to the pudding and keeps the batter nice and moist too.
It may seem slightly counter-intuitive but making a self-saucing pudding actually involves pouring a sauce on top of your batter before baking. In the oven, the batter rises and the liquid layer sinks to the bottom resulting in a soft and spongy pudding (with a crunchy crust I might add) and a tangy, syrupy sauce at the bottom. I prefer to at mine warm from the oven (with a generous dollop of plain double cream yoghurt) but there is something rather yummy about eating it cold too – the sauce thickens up and I felt like I was eating a piece of cake with granadilla glaze!
TIP: As with all self-saucing puddings, the sauce is poured over the back of a spoon so that it lands on the batter softly and does not break through/mix into the batter. You want it to sit on top of the batter in a separate layer.
