A very simple microwave sponge pudding in less than 15 minutes with a texture between a sponge and a steamed pudding. I often add 2 tablespoons of jam or syrup to the bottom of the final bowl. Serve hot with custard.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup self-rising flour
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 tablespoons milk
In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Mix in the egg and milk gradually, so as not to curdle the butter. Sift in the flour, and fold in gently. Transfer to a 1 pint microwave-safe bowl.
Cover, and cook for 3 1/2 minutes on full powder, or until the pudding appears set when gently jiggled, and the top is sticky. Serve hot.
