Microwave Treacle Sponge Pudding
Traditional puddings certainly seems to be making a comeback in our restaurants. I blame nouvelle cuisine for their disappearance! Now we see good old standard puddings back on the menus. Sticky toffee pudding, jam roly poly, treacle tart, apple pie, the list goes on and I am sure you can all name a favourite.
I find three problems with treacle pudding. Firstly, the recipe usually gives you amounts to make a pudding to serve 6, too much temptation for the two of us to eat the whole lot. Secondly, you have to constantly check that it hasn’t boiled dry. Thirdly, the cooking process usually produces enough steam to take the wallpaper off. So this recipe is for the microwave and it is highly successful for just about any number of puddings.
