This was the first recipe I ever had published. It appeared in a local paper the year before I started the blog. A school-friend was writing for the paper and asked for cooking-with-kids recipes to publish on the school holidays. I readily agreed. My photography was horrible, but the pudding was as delicious then as it is now!
I love it because it's quick easy and (because you likely have all the ingredients already) you can make it on a after-dinner feeling-like-something-sweet whim. The other bonus is unlike microwave mug cakes it makes enough for a family!
This magic microwave pudding tastes like golden syrup dumplings and is ready in just eight minutes.
golden syrup pudding
Yield 4 serves
With this microwave golden syrup pudding recipe, you can have all the wonderful flavour of golden syrup dumplings in just eight minutes - just the thing for satisfying dessert cravings!
60g butter in small cubes
¾ cup sugar
½ cup milk
1 cup self-raising flour
3 tbs golden syrup
1 ½ cups boiling water
In a large, microwave-safe bowl mix together sugar, flour and milk. Stir until they form a smooth paste, smooth the surface.
Top with the butter cubes - distributing evenly across the top of the mix.
Dissolve the golden syrup in the boiling water and pour over the top - using the back of a spoon to avoid making a hole in the top of the pudding.
Microwave on high for 8 minutes. Serve with ice cream.
what's your favourite after-dinner feeling-like-something-sweet treat?
I'd like to try this sometime when I fancy a treat and am short on time. What microwave wattage is used please? there's a lot of variation out there. Thanks.

My microwave is 1200 watts Esther. If your's has a lower wattage, I suggest extending the cooking time. 🙂
