Method1. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and grease 8 x 200ml pudding tins.
2. Mix together the black treacle and milk. Put the butter, sugar, flour, baking powder, mixed spice, eggs and treacle and milk mix in a large mixing bowl and beat with a wooden spoon for 2-3 minutes, or use an electric hand mixer for 1 minute, then gently fold in the blueberries.
3. Divide the mixture evenly between the pudding tins and bake for 20-25 minutes, until risen and cooked though.
4. For the butterscotch sauce: While the puddings are baking, make the sauce by adding the the butter, sugar and cream to a medium saucepan over a low heat.
5. Heat slowly for about 5 minutes or until the sugar has completely dissolved and the butter melted. Raise the heat to bring to a boil then bubble fairly vigorously for 3-4 minutes without stirring, or until the sauce has thickened and is a rich toffee colour. Let the bubbles subside, then stir in the salt.
6. When the puddings are cooked, remove from the oven, leave in the tins for a few minutes, then carefully loosen around the sides with a small palette knife and turn out onto plates.
7. Serve with a little of the warm sauce poured over and decorate with a few blueberries and holly sprigs. Serve the rest of the sauce separately.
