Time to make: 38 mins (Hands-on time: 8 mins, Cooking time: 30 mins)
Total cost: $10.20 / $1.70 per serve
1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup trim milk
500g apricots, halved, stones removed
1 tablespoon reduced-fat spread, to grease
Step 1 Preheat oven to 200°C. Blend flour, salt, eggs, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and milk in a blender or processor. Process for 1 minute or until mixture becomes a smooth batter. Or mix batter by hand: place flour, salt, eggs, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon in a large bowl and beat with a wooden spoon until smooth. Add milk, half at a time, beating well.
Step 2 Leave batter to rest and prepare fruit. Place apricots in a lightly greased ovenproof dish or small dishes. Pour over batter and cook large pudding for 25-30 minutes until batter has puffed up. Small puddings need about 20 minutes.
Step 3 Serve immediately with a sprinkling of icing sugar.
