Treacle Sponge Recipe

Treacle Sponge Recipe

Ingredients : Serves 4

45 ml/3 tbsp golden (light corn) syrup

15 ml/1 tbsp fresh breadcrumbs
100 g/4 oz/0.5 cup butter or margarine

100 g/4 oz/0.5 cup caster (superfine) sugar
Grated rind of 1 lemon
2 eggs, beaten
100 g/4 oz/1 cup self-raising (self-rising) flour
A pinch of salt
75 ml/5 tbsp milk

Method :

Mix together the syrup and breadcrumbs and spoon into a greased 450 g/1 lb pudding basin. Cream the butter or margarine until soft, then blend in the sugar and lemon rind and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, a little at a time, then fold in the flour and salt with enough of the milk to make a soft dropping consistency. Spoon into the basin and cover with pleated greaseproof (waxed) paper. Place in a large saucepan and add enough boiling water to come half-way up the side of the basin. Cover and steam for 1.5 hours, topping up with boiling water as necessary, until spongy to the touch.
