4 oz. softened butter
4 oz. castor sugar (fine granulated will do)
4 oz. self raising flour
4 tablespoons Golden Syrup (Lyles)
4 tablespoons Golden Syrup (as above)
2 tablespoons water
Butter a 1 pint pudding basin. Cream the butter & sugar in a bowl until soft &
fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, adding in a little flour with the second egg to prevent
curdling. Fold in the flour & salt, lightly. If the mixture is too dry add a little
milk. Spoon the syrup into the bottom of the bowl then add the pudding mixture. Cover with
a sheet of buttered foil and bake at 375 F for 35-40 minutes.
Put second lot of syrup in small pan with water and heat ready to pour over pudding when
you turn it out onto a plate.
Good luck. (Lyles syrup is available in Loblaws in Canada, but expect you can get it in
USA, also SR flour there too)
