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.

A lovely, warming banana sponge pudding with warm toffee sauce. I ask about for new cake recipes and this was one my gran thought I deserved to have. It's turned upside down when removed from the oven. It is delicious served with cream or custard.

This is my first recipe that I've posted. As the title suggests. Its an apple and sultana sponge pudding. A bit on the lines of an eves pudding. It's quick, easy and beautiful served with custard, cream or ice cream. Or just enjoy on its own. Your choice.

Very simple steamed sponge. Made in an electric steamer - YES it worked. I didn't want to put the oven on just to make a little sponge so tried this, I can't believe it worked out so delicious. Also very quick.
