Syrup Sponge

Syrup Sponge

By Emma's Mum

Requires a microwave


  • 4 oz caster sugar
  • 4 oz self raising flour
  • 4 oz butter
  • 2 medium eggs
  • sultanas
  • golden syrup


  1. Mix all ingredients (except the sultanas and syrup) together in a bowl (but have some flour in before the eggs). If it starts to curdle, keep whisking.
  2. The mix should be runnier than usual, so consider adding a drop of milk if it's too thick.
  3. Fold in the sultanas gently, being careful not to lose the air.
  4. Put golden syrup in bottom of a Pyrex bowl. Spoon in the batter over the top.
  5. Microwave on full power, uncovered, for 5-6 mins, until pulling away from the edges.
