TAJB ( Tom)

In the late sixties my then-girlfriend's mother used to produce the most fantastic syrup sponge pud which was not only rich and moist but also had delicious caramalised edges. Since then I've tried many pretenders and also made a few attempts to come somewhere near her perfect pud but to no avail. They've all been good but nowhere near her wonderful creation.

HOW DID SHE DO IT ??????? --- was it, perhaps, baked rather than steamed ??

HELP, HELP, HELP !!!!!!!

Hello Tom,

Sounds lovely.

Perhaps she did bake it but I don’t think it would give the caramelized edges that you describe.

I wonder if she might have steamed it ahead, turned it out, smothered it in more syrup then baked it in the oven to re-heat it?

Best wishes

syrup sponge pud

Many thanks for the prompt reply, Lyndsey.
My dear Mrs asks whether buttering the bowl and sugaring it might help if the pud is baked ?
Cheers
Tom

PS -- shouldn't you be out enjoying yourself on a Friday night ?

Hello Again,

Your wives suggestion is certainly worth a try. At least any failed attempts will still be good enough to eat.
