Very nice tasting pudding, different & most enjoyable! Not even wanting to go out looking for golden syrup, for it I substituted half honey & half corn syrup to keep something of the consistency & the sweetness! It worked out well, I think, & the pudding was OUTSTANDING by all counts! Many thanks for sharing! [Made & reviewed for one of my teammates in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #15

This was a simply-super recipe that the whole family loved. So easy to make. I couldn't find any golden syrup (sometimes we can get it) so I subbed maple syrup. It's nothing like golden syrup, but it proved to be a delicious alternative. This is definitely going into my 'quick and delectable' dessert rotation.

It was amazing! It mixed up really easy, I was a bit worried as I poured all that boiling water over my batter, but I need'nt have as it cooked for 50 mins and tasted wonderful. I served it with double cream and after finishing his first bowlfull (see photo)DH's comment was "there has got to be seconds of that??" A definate hit..I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks stardustannie, you have been a wonderful Fall '06 PAC adopted daughter!
