I fancied a traditional treacle sponge pudding today (on a Wednesday night too - slap my wrists!), but didn't have the time for the whole steaming business. This is a very cheeky and quick recipe that is as good as if you'd spent hours slaving over a stove.
I even cracked open a tin of Ambrosia Custard too, but had to add some cream to make it super bad!
100g unsalted butter, softened
100g caster sugar
100g self raising flour
3 tbsp milk
3 tbsp golden syrup
HOW TO MAKE:
Put the golden syrup in the bottom of a microwaveable dish. Cream the butter and sugar together. Next, beat an egg at a time with a spoonful of flour, so the mixture doesn't curdle. Fold the rest of the flour and milk in and then pour the batter on top of the golden syrup. Place a microwaveable plate on top of the pudding dish and microwave for 6 minutes on full power. Leave to stand for 2 minutes, then serve with a whole load of custard!
