Ingredients will be provided by School

w/c 18 September – Microwave Pudding

Ingredients
50g soft baking margarine or butter                     
50g caster sugar                             
50g self-raising flour

1 tsp baking powder    

Optional Ingredients (choose 1 of the following if you wish)

1 tbsp cocoa powder
50g dried fruit e.g. currants
2 tbsp golden syrup
100g fresh fruit (e.g. apples, cherries, pears) or you could use tinned fruit for topping

Remember – buying fruit that is in season will usually be cheaper than using an exotic fruit. The fruit does not need to be completely fresh so this is a good way of using up fruit that may be “lurking” in the fruit bowl at home.
