Anzac Self Saucing Pudding

Delicious just like an Anzac biscuit, but in a pudding, with a yummy golden syrup sauce. I love the chewiness of the oats in this pudding. Serve with ice cream and/or cream and enjoy.

  1. Kirsty this pudding tastes as good as it looks. The flavours are just beautiful, easy to make & just delicious. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

  2. Absolutely delicious. Next time I think I will make a little extra sauce, but otherwise perfect. Thanks Kirsty.

  3. I made this again last night and increased to boiling water to 3 cups to make extra sauce. Nothing else changed. Lots of yummy sauce. I will continue to make with 3 cups of water from now on.

    Made this a few nights ago with a few minor changes.
    Changed flour to wholemeal flour and sugar to raw sugar as Hubby is diabetic. Replaced coconut with more oats as I don’t like coconut.
    Everyone LOVED it!!!!!
    I will definitely be adding more water next time for more sauce.
    Hubby had it for breakfast the next day, rationalised it had oats in it so it was like eating porridge………….sort of……
    He said it was even better the next day!!

  5. Hubby found it too stodgy for him. I however, have discovered my new favourite winter pudding, so all the more for me.! Lovely with a splash of cream or scoop of ice cream. Reminds me of puddings from my childhood!

  6. I made this tonight. Was really yummy and my son who is fussy really enjoyed it. I also really like that this isn’t too sweet. I did however change 2 things. I added an additional 1/2 cup of golden syrup to the pudding and added 3 cups boiling water for the sauce. I served with ice cream and whipped cream. Will definitely be making again.

    This is great tasting love it was buying butter scotch pud forten vuxfron countdown and kids thort to rich they love this and it’s cheeper making itthan buying wat I use to the three cups water sounds better more sauce

  8. Was so yummy, I did as others said and used 3 cups of water and a little extra to ingredients as my slow cooker is 5litre and recipe I did was for 3.5litre. Thankyou for the recipe.

  9. Love this dessert. Timing is also great as you can put it on just before the main meal and it’s ready after the meal is digested. Too good to just save for ANZAC day.

    Don’t often make dessert, but so glad I made this one.!!
    Highly recommend this one for those that like sweet, gooey yumminess on a cold winter night. Secretly glad it’s only me and hubby living at home now so we don’t have to share the leftovers over the next couple of nights

  11. Tasty and satisfying! I doubled the recipe (kept the sugar as 1/2 cup though) we’ll have pudding for weeks in the freezer!

  12. My slow cooker is bigger than 3.5 litres…..can I use a smaller bowl inside my slow cooker or do I have to double the recipe? Thanks

    Made this pudding, it was lovely. I followed the recipe and made it in my 3.5 l slow cooker. Took 2 hours to cook; was worth the wait. Served with ice cream and cream. It was even better the next day , heated in microwave.

    Scrumptious dessert full of deliciousness. Hubby loves this one and is a regular favourite of his.
    Sc for 1 1/2 hours on high in my 3.5L slow cooker.
    Plenty of leftovers for tomorrow
