When you’re in a pinch and need to whip up a quick dessert, or you just have a hankering for something warm and gooey, this is it. Don’t let the simplicity make you think this dessert isn’t the bees knees. This is my mum’s recipe and it’s old school and decadent. Give it a whirl and let me know how yours turns out.

Heat oven to 350 degrees

1 1/3 c. packed brown sugar

2 1/2 – 3 cups water

2 tsp. vanilla

Put into a pot, heat until boiling and let it go for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and put into a 9×13 pan or some fancy pants casserole dish.

Mix together with a whisk:

1 T. melted butter

1/2 c. white sugar

1/2 c. milk

1 cup flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

Drop by spoonfuls into the hot butterscotch. Place them so they’re “floating” in the dreamy liquid! Bake until the clouds are a golden brown. Serve with vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped cream.

I was too excited and took a picture before I added my whipped cream!
