“This is much nicer than it perhaps sounds, its proper stick to your ribs material and makes a quick cheap supper time pudding, it is in fact a sweet type of Yorkshire pudding. The golden syrup and evaporated milk are essential if you want the full experience especially as the pudding itself is not very sweet. Old fashioned pudding goodness mmmm!”
