    Loved this and it brought a sentimental tear to a British ex-pat's eye. Substituted some leftover pear and ginger syrup for the golden syrup and it worked a treat.

    Having invested in a steam pudding bowl with clip lid, my first attempt was this recipe - incredibly easy, and took just a few minutes to make. I halved the amount of lemon as the rest of the family aren't keen on lemon puddings - but still too much for them. I would have liked the syrup to permeate through the pudding a bit more than it did, but that's because I have a very sweet tooth - it probably was a good balance of soft sponge pudding with about an inch around the outside soaked in syrup. Will make again.
