Microwave Sponge Pudding

Here is a variation on the traditional sponge which can be successfully cooked in the microwave, making a quick and easy dessert! Sorry but I haven't tried this without egg yet.

100g SR Flour (I use Glebe Farm)
100g free from butter substitute (TREX, "Pure" sun flour/olive or Stork block but melt this a bit first)
100g caster sugar
2 eggs
30ml milk substitute
3 tbsp golden syrup

Put the golden syrup into a pudding basin
Whisk the other ingredients together (or whizz in a Kenwood food processor!)
Pour on top of the syrup, smoothing to the edges of the basin so all the syrup is covered
Microwave on full power for 3-5 minutes.

If you use a shallow basin it will take 3-4 mins, 5 for a deeper one.
We regularly make half this quantity in a small basin and cook for 3 mins. I think substituting the egg might work better at half quantities too?

You can make a chocolate version  y replacing a small amount of flour with cocoa and replace the syrup with cocoa (& even coffee!) added to hot water.

I have no photos for this recipe as yet, it is usually seized upon and eaten very, very quickly by my children!
