This super easy microwave sponge pudding is perfect for those times when you have nothing in for pudding. It uses ingredients you probably have in the cupboard takes about 10 minutes to make and bake.
When I was little we used to have something similar after our Sunday roast. This Sunday I decided to make a similar recipe and see how it turned out. I didn’t realise how easy it is to make and although it’s not the same as a properly made cake or a steamed sponge, it’s great considering how easy and quick it is.
Cream the butter and sugar in a bowl until smooth. Mix in the egg and milk a little at a time. Sift in the flour, and fold carefully.
Put 2 tablespoons of golden syrup/jam treacle or jam in bottom of microwave-safe bowl. Pour the batter over this carefully.
Cover, and cook for 3 1/2 minutes on full powder, or until the pudding appears set when gently jiggled, and the top is sticky. Serve hot with custard.
