How to Make:

  1. Brush a 1L (4-cup) capacity heatproof, microwave-safe pudding bowl with melted butter to lightly grease. Pour 80ml (1/3 cup) of the golden syrup over the base.
  2. Place the coconut in an oven bag and twist the opening to secure. Cook on High/800watts/100%, gently shaking the bag every minute, for 3 minutes or until the coconut is toasted.
  3. Use an electric beater to beat the butter, sugar and vanilla extract in a large bowl until well combined. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well between each addition, until combined. Add the flour and coconut milk and stir until well combined. Use a large metal spoon to gently fold in the toasted coconut. Spoon the mixture over the golden syrup.
  4. Cover the top of the pudding bowl with a sheet of non-stick baking paper and tie with unwaxed white kitchen string to secure. Place the pudding on a microwave-safe rack or upturned dinner plate and cook on Medium/500watts/50% for 9-11 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  5. Remove the pudding from the microwave and set aside for 5 minutes before turning out onto a large serving plate. Drizzle with the remaining golden syrup.
  6. Cut into wedges and serve hot with vanilla ice-cream.
