Cup Pudding

READY IN: 4mins
Recipe by Bokenpop aka Madele

This is an ideal dessert for two. This is made in no time and can be cooked and left in the microwave whilst eating the main course. Serve with custard sauce if so desired.

I loved the ease and quickness of preparation and also thought it was a very pretty dessert when placed upside down on a plate. I love golden syrup, and this recipe highlights it nicely. However, I wonder if the texture would be better if it were mixed just until blended rather than beating until smooth. Thanks for an intro to SA puddings!
