I have now made this pudding several times.
It is the best sponge and turns out every time.
This is the best microwave pudding recipe.

We added a handful of raisons and subbed maple syrup for golden syrup. Delicious served with plain greek yogurt!

Great last minute pudding...very easy, basic pantry ingredients...made it a few times now

Not very saucy and cake was not pudding-like. Better off trying the microwave pudding by taste.

Replace the golden syrup with maple syrup!!!!!! I used melted butter instead. And also replace the white sugar with soft brown sugar. Maple syrup is so much yummier ;)

Great recipe, used this many times. great for quick dessert for the family. I must say i do add a little more syrup before cooking as we like it gooey. I also make this recipe and use strawberry jam or add berries!

Followed your recipe exactly perfect first timer using my microwave for dessert.

Made this as instructed, gave an extra 30 seconds as wasn't quite sure whether it was done in the middle but don't think I needed to. Either way, absolutely delicious. Took some tips from other reviews and melted the butter first then put extra syrup on after cooking.

This is absolutely gorgeous....lush and The Mutts nuts... do exactly as recipe says and double the jam or topping for a perfect sponge pudding

Awful recipe. What happened to the sauce? Made this last night and tossed it.

This was fabulous. Served 2 of us with lots left over. Added more golden syrup on top plus a scoop of ice cream and a bit of cream…….

I was very impressed! So simple yet so delicious. Perfect fix for those late night sugar cravings. Very light and fluffy sponge, golden syrup could definitely be swapped for any sweet sauce/jam and it would still taste great.

Timings and quantities are spot on.

Absolutely fantastic, so easy and tasted just like mums homemade steamed jam sponge which took hours to make !!

One of the best and easiest to make. I have made lots of microwave puddings. I only had plain flour but added 1.5tsp of baking powder used jam came out absolutely fine.

Best pudding that I ever made and thats not just my opinion, it includes my neighbors.

Quick, easy, light and tasty sponge.

Lovely light sponge pudding I used blackcurrent jam instead of syrup, so fast and easy to make we had it for afternoon tea, yummy.

Easy microwave pudding: On a typical freezing spring May day during lock down, I was looking for something quick and hot for sweet at lunch time to warm everyone up. This recipe took minutes to make and worked really well. My microwave is a 1900 watts and the inner sponge came out a nice texture after the recommended time. Syrup yummy! Served with custard. Went down really well with the troops.

I disliked this recipe. The cake was dense and the sauce stuck to my bowl.

I melt the butter to make this even easier to mix up and I double or triple the golden syrup to pander to my husband's sweet tooth. Fantastic recipe.

Easy peasy and delicious

The photo of it may not be the best-looking, but don't let it put you off! This pudding is amazing!

This was the best golden syrup recipe

Makes a nice light sponge pudding, quick and easy! Lovely with dollop of cream. Definitely a keeper.
