Mini Steamed Self Saucing Puddings - made in the microwave

Mini Steamed Puddings by Baking Makes Things Better - golden syrup sauce 
These Mini Steamed Puddings are easy to make and are so yummy!  This is a recipe I learnt while I was at intermediate school, so it is a really simple one and great to get kids involved in baking.  They are really quick to make, just a quick zap in the microwave and they are done.  Both jam and golden syrup make the perfect sauce, I really can’t choose which one I like best.  Either way, the puddings are a perfect hot treat on a cold Winter’s night.

Mini Steamed Self Saucing Puddings made in the microwave.  Recipe by Baking Makes Things Better 
Serves 2.

2 tablespoons jam or golden syrup
½ cup flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
25g butter
2 tablespoons sugar
½ egg (use a whole egg, halve later)
¼ cup milk


Wet the inside of two mugs leaving a splash of water in the bottom.  Add the jam or golden syrup.
Sift the flour and baking powder together in a medium sized bowl.  Rub in the butter and sugar to the flour mixture, to make a fine crumb.
Whisk an egg, then halve.  Add the milk and egg to the flour mixture and mix well.
Half fill the mugs with the batter. Cover with glad wrap leaving a small opening.
Microwave on high for 1 and a half minutes or until the mixture is springy to touch (time based on a 1100 watt microwave).
Stand for two minutes before turning out and serving.
