QUICK SPONGE PUDDING

A super fast desert that you will almost definitely have the ingredients for in the store cupboard! The topping can be anything you like from syrup, treacle, jam or lemon curd.  Add slices of lemon to the golden syrup or coco powder to the sponge for a chocolate pudding.


This is a regular weekend treat in the Baker household when the kids are craving something sweet after the Sunday roast! A satisfying pud that literally takes 10 minutes from start to finish.

Ingredients
 120g self raising flour
120g sugar
4 tbsp milk
120g soft butter
4 tbsp golden syrup treacle (or topping of your choice)
2 free range eggs

Cream the butter and sugar together with the back of a wooden spoon smooth and then beat until a fluffy smooth paste. Beat in one egg until fully combined and beat in the second egg.  Mix in the flour until combined and then stir in the milk.  Put the golden syrup (or your choice topping) into the pudding bowl and pour over the sponge mix.  Microwave for 3 minutes, check with a skewer and if still sticky, give the sponge another minute or so.  Don't over cook though as the sponge will go hard and dry!


Let it sit for a couple of minutes and then turn out onto a plate. 



Serve with custard, ice-cream or cream.

  4. This is good, very good. And very easy. We mixed all the sponge ingredients in a processor, which may be cheating but still tasted fine as my two boys aged 5 and 3 very keenly agree. Thanks.
