Ingredients

Maple Sauce:
  • 2 cups/500ml pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup/250ml 35-percent cream
  • 1/2 cup/125ml brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup/60ml butter
Batter:
  • 1 cup/250ml butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup/250ml sugar
  • 1 tablespoon/15ml pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups/500ml all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons/10ml baking powder
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 cup/250ml milk
  • Vanilla ice cream, for serving

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).

For the maple sauce: Bring the maple syrup, cream, brown sugar and butter to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

For the batter: Cream the butter, sugar and vanilla in a bowl with a mixer. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, alternating with the milk, and beating until just combined.

Divide the batter among 8 ramekins. Pour the syrup over the batter. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of the pudding comes out clean, about 35 minutes.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
