Easy Peasy Treacle Sponge Pudding

I'm useless at steaming puddings and I have used the Be-Ro recipe book to try a microwave treacle pudding but it just goes dry and horrible, so this recipe is not only easy to make but tastes great.

First of all, you need to make a basic Victoria sponge to go on top of the golden syrup:

100g Self Raising Flour
100g Caster Sugar
100g Stork Margarine
2 Eggs

For this recipe I just bung it all in the food processor and blend until smooth and thoroughly mixed through.

Next in an oven proof dish add some golden syrup, for this square dish I used about 3 heaped tablespoons but make sure you have a good amount of golden syrup on the bottom of the dish.

Then add the Victoria sponge mixture onto the top of the golden syrup and spread gently until all of the golden syrup is covered.

Place in the oven (on 160c) for about 20-25 minutes, you can either check this is cooked with by pressing lightly on the cake and it should bounce back or you can use a skewer or cake tester to check it comes out clean.

What you have then is a gorgeous soft and moist sponge pudding, serve with cream or custard or whatever you prefer.

This all went in one sitting as everyone loves it so much, lots of hot warm oozing golden syrup is always a treat.

Next time jam maybe?
