It is a funny old time for everyone, maybe you have lots of extra family members at home, with schools and universities closed, therefore lots of mouths to feed or maybe you are on your own. Whatever the circumstances a little bit of comfort food is always welcome! While it’s difficult to be sourcing fancy ingredients and even some of the more basic ones seem in short supply we need to be creative with the ones we have. This recipe just uses a few store cupboard ingredients that hopefully you’ll have in. It is also really quick and easy to do, using the microwave to cook rather than a more traditional method. Before this recipe our microwave was only used for defrosting and heating the odd cup of cold coffee!
Quick Treacle Sponge
30g Golden Syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
45g light brown sugar (or whatever sugar you have to hand)
60g Self Raising flour
Vanilla ice cream, cream or custard – whatever you have in!
Traditionally if I was making a Treacle sponge I would make proper custard or crème anglaise while the sponge was steaming, however, this quick and easy version requires a quick and easy custard! If you have some custard powder this is a good speedy alternative or if that seems too arduous in these trying times opening a tin of custard will do perfectly!
