100g/4oz caster sugar
175g/6oz plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons milk
4 tablespoons golden syrup
• Cream the butter and sugar in a bowl. Beat in the eggs, one at a time.
• Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together, and fold into the mixture,
adding just enough milk to give a dropping consistency.
• Butter a 1.2-litre/2pt pudding basin, then pour the syrup into the bottom.
Spoon in the batter to fill the basin. Cover the top with a round of
buttered baking parchment, and secure pleated foil over that with string.
• Stand in a pan of simmering water with a lid on, and steam for
11⁄2 hours, topping up with boiling water when necessary. Invert the
pudding onto a serving plate. Serve hot.
