I always double this recipe but the recipe is enough for four. Grease a largish casserole dish.
In a bowl blend together 1 cup SR flour, 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup milk. I actually do this in the casserole dish I am going to cook it in. Eliminating washing up.
If you like sultanas then add a handful once you have blended the other ingredients.
Then in a jug of 2 cups boiling water add 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 generous tablespoon of golden syrup.
I just add the butter on top of the flour mix, drizzle over the golden syrup and pour over the hot water and gently rotate it a bit. (saving another container to wash up) It mixes itself!
At this point you are thinking "I have done something wrong" or "I must stop listening to Annabel"
This is a good sign your'e on the right track!
Pop into a medium/hot oven and bake until golden and bubbly. It will look like this....
When I cook it I make sure my casserole/baking dish is quite large or I place a baking tray under it. It bubbles up and spills are sticky. Beware.
Serve with ice cream or cream.
It is my observation that men seem to go mad over recipes like this. I think maybe that it reminds them of their Mum's or Nana's cooking or something. They think you are somehow brilliant and gifted when in fact this is the laziest recipe you are ever likely to find!
I hope this winter warmer is a treat for your family and maybe an economical help too.
We have a lovely sunny day today. It is so nice after a few weeks of storms and freezing weather. But this pudding is very good and warming when the weather is wild and cold.
Have a wonderful Sunday.xxx
