      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.

        I made this when I had been cooking all day and was tired but still wanted something sweet for dessert but without all the fuss. This really did the trick. This has become a go to dessert recipe for all occasions when you need something simple, easy, delicious and absolutely fool proof. Thank you sooo much Chuck!!
