Nowadays fruit carts are filled with so many exotic berries and fruits. I wanted to Celebrate my niece‘s 10 th result and thought of using natural fresh fruit to prepare some dessert and made this. This is a delicious, melt-in the-mouth fig mud pie with a silky butterscotch sauce.
Fresh figs – 250 gms.
Water – ¾ cup
Butter – 100 gms (at room temperature)
Light brown organic sugar – 2/3 cup
Maida – 1 ½ cups
Baking powder – 1tsp
Baking soda – ½ tsp
Vanilla essence- 1 tsp
Milk – 1/3 cup
For Butterscotch sauce: Butterscotch chips – ½ cup and milk – ¼ cup
-Wash and chop fresh figs into pieces.
-Boil water, switch off the gas. Put chopped fig into hot water and keep it covered for 10 minutes
.-Mix Maida, baking soda and powder and keep aside.
-Pre heat oven at 180 C.
– Line your baking dish with butter paper and keep it ready.
– Now take one glass bowl, beat butter and sugar, add vanilla and beat until smooth.
-Add soaked fig mixture and beat.
-Pour this mixture into lined baking tray and bake in a pre-heated oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until centre of the pudding cooks. If you insert a knife to check, it should come out clean.
-When it is done, remove from the oven and cool
-Now fold in Maida and milk alternatively and make homogenous mixture.
-Meanwhile prepare butterscotch sauce. Take one saucepan, put in butterscotch chips and milk, and while boiling mix vigorously, ( If u don’t stir it while boiling, the sauce will become clumpy) until you get smooth saucy texture. Switch off the gas and reserve this sauce until you serve.
When pudding is a little cool, remove from the baking tray ,cut .If it is cool, warm this in the microwave, and pour hot sauce and serve.
-This pudding tastes really yummy when it is hot.
