Kitchen tip: sponge in seconds

a Enlarge


07 APRIL 2010

If you've ever fancied pudding but not had the time to put something together, try making your normal steamed sponge mixture then place into a microwave-proof plastic bowl – but only use about a quarter of the amount of mixture you normally would. Microwave for a few minutes and you will be left with perfectly airy, light steamed sponge. Check it's cooked through by sticking a skewer in and seeing if it comes out clean. Serve with cream, custard or ice cream.
