This is another wonderful family recipe, the type of recipe that women used to pass around and share with each other. From the family hand written cook book:
1 cup Self Raising Flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons melted butter
Mix into batter and spoon into greased oven-proof dish. Sprinkle with 1 cup brown sugar, (and optional 1 teaspoon instant coffee).
Gently pour 1 3/4 cup boiling water over the batter and topping. (I pour over the back of a spoon).
Bake in oven 190C or 375F (a little less for fan forced) for 40 - 45 minutes.
