Syrup Sponge Puddings
We are going through a cool spell weather-wise so cheer yourself up with this great sponge pudding.
100g self-raising flour
100g caster sugar
100g soft margarine or softened butter
2 large eggs
Grated zest of 1 lemon
6 dessert spoons golden syrup
Butter to coat the pudding tins
In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, margarine, eggs and lemon juice together, using a hand-held mixer.
Butter 6 small pudding tins and spoon 1 dessert spoon of syrup into each one.
Fill each pudding tin 2/3 full with the sponge mixture and cover them with greaseproof paper or tin foil with a crease folded over the top to allow for the expansion of the sponge. Tie with string or use a thick elastic band to keep the foil in place.
Steam for 20-25 minutes until the top feels springy.
