Sponge Pudding and Custard, in less than 15 minutes

I haven’t posted a recipe for a while, here’s one of my favourites, ideal for when you need a quick and easy pudding.

Serves two.

First, mix 2 tablespoons custard powder and 2 tablespoons of sugar to a paste with a splash of milk. Make the paste up to one pint and stir well.

You can miss this part out if you have ready-made custard, just open the packet and pour it into a microwaveable container.

Put some Golden Syrup in a bowl (or Jam or Marmalade).

Melt 1 oz butter in a jug in the microwave. Remove from the microwave, replacing with the custard.

Heat the custard in the microwave on maximum for 5-7 minutes. (750W). Ready-made will need a lot less time, don’t let it boil over.

Whilst that is cooking, mix 2oz Self Raising Flour with the melted butter, then add 1oz sugar and 1 egg. Beat to a smooth batter, spoon over the syrup to cover.

Custard, sponge and syrup.

Seal this dish with cling film.

Check the custard, it should be going thick by now, give it a stir, if it is thick and warm take it out and put the sponge/syrup bowl in.

Microwave for 3 minutes, then rest for 2 minutes. It should look like this. Use the resting time to finish off heating the custard, if required.

After it’s rested, serve into portions, pour the custard over.

      The basic sponge would work in all sorts of ways, cooled and topped with fruit and whipped cream springs to mind
