    A very simple microwave sponge pudding in less than 15 minutes with a texture between a sponge and a steamed pudding. Flavour it by adding raspberry jam, treacle or golden syrup to the bottom of the final bowl. Serve hot with custard.

    This is a recipe I have known since I was a child and is a great one to rustle up if you are in need of a quick chocolate fix as it comes out as a chocolate sponge cake with a delicious choc sauce hidden at the bottom. Great with icecream!
