from the kitchen of
3 tablespoons treacle (can substitute jam or preserves but not jelly)
1-1/4 cup self raising four
3/4 cup margarine
A little milkómaybe 2-3 tablespoons
Cream together sugar and margarine. Add eggs and mix well. Add flour
and milk. Grease a large (about 12 cup) microwave safe bowl. Place
the treacle in the bottom. Place batter on top. Cover with Saran Wrap.
Microwave for 6-8 minutes. Leave to set for a couple of minutes.
Turn out on a plate. *Serve with egg custard and a little drizzle of treacle
syrup on top.
*Bird Instant Custard Powder Mix
Available in England or where English food products are sold. (It is
like a rich vanilla pudding)
*Tate & Lyle Treacle (a thick rich syrupólike our pancake
syrups only finer)
Sue and her mother adapted this recipe for American use in a microwave
and said it turns out 95% of the time. She is not aware of any substitute
for the egg custard. As far as she knows there's nothing like it
in the U.S. (and Barb Agrees).
