Made the old fashioned way with golden syrup either in a conventional oven or an Aga. Can be prepared one day ahead.

Mary Berry’s Treacle Pudding

Mary Berry's Treacle PuddingIngredients serves 6
6 good tbsp golden syrup
175g self-raising flour
50g caster sugar
75g shredded vegetable suet
1tsp vanilla extract
about 150ml milk
You will need: a 1.1 litre (2 pint) pudding basin, greased

How to prepare
Measure the golden syrup into the bottom of a greased 1.1 litre pudding basin.
Mix the flour, sugar and suet together in a mixing bowl. Add the vanilla extract and enough milk to bind to a soft dough. Pour into the basin on top of the syrup. Cover with greaseproof paper and seal the top with a foil lid.
Put the basin in a stainless steel saucepan with a tight-fitting lid. Fill with enough water to come halfway up the basin and cook on the hob for about 3½ hours, occasionally checking on the level of the water in the pan, topping up when needed with more boiling water.
OR to cook with an Aga, bring to the boil on the boiling plate for about 8 minutes. Transfer the pan, water and basin to the floor of the simmering oven and cook for about 3½ hours until the pudding is nicely risen and firm to the touch.
Turn the pudding upside down on to a plate so that all the syrup runs down the sides. Serve warm with custard and more warm golden syrup, if liked.
