Steamed Syrup Puddings – Willey’s Weekly Bake 219

We had leftover custard that was out of date so these were something I quickly whipped up and an easy pudding, they can be cooked for a couple of minutes in the microwave but better steamed over the hob in water.


  • 60g Self Raising Flour
  • 60g Caster sugar
  • 60g Butter/Margarine
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tbsp Milk
  • Small drop of vanilla bean paste
  • 80g Syrup


  1. Cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla bean paste until light and fluffy.
  2. Add the egg and flour and beat together until smooth.
  3. Grease your sponge tins/ramekins with butter.
  4. Add your syrup to the bottom your tin and then add the sponge batter on top.
  5. If steaming add tin foil to the top and in a large sauce pan with water up halfway on the sides of the pudding on a low to medium heat for 40 mins until baked. (Or a couple of minute in the microwave – no tin foil though, and I’d recommend putting a plate underneath!)
  6. Serve with custard or ice cream.
