This is a lovely easy winter warmer which only takes 5 mins to prepare and 5 mins to cook in the microwave!
It is nice when you just want a hot pudding but don’t have time to turn the oven on.
It’s pretty rustic, so not dinner party material, but homely and family friendly.
Ingredients : to serve 6
100g self-raising flour
4 tbsp raspberry jam
The ingredients can easily be halved to make a pudding for 3
How to: Put the flour into a food processor. Add the sugar, butter, milk and eggs and whiz to make a smooth paste. Grease a glass pudding basin and dust the sides with a little flour. Spoon the jam into the bottom of the basin and pour the sponge mixture on top. Cover loosely with cling film and microwave on High for about 5 mins until the sponge is well spongy to the touch. (If making a smaller pudding, reduce the cooking time accordingly). Turn the pudding out onto a plate, slice and serve with cream, custard, yoghurt or ice-cream.
