This oven-baked sponge pudding soaked with sweet, sticky syrup is delicious served with hot custard. What could be better than a slimming-friendly pud that's just as good as the one we enjoyed as children? Using a golden syrup alternative reduces the calories significantly, but you still get that recognisable texture and treacle flavour!

Hints & Tips

Below we added some of our communities most common hints and tips. We hope you find them useful.

We used a golden syrup alternative fruit syrup made by Sweet Freedom as it contains fewer calories than golden syrup. You can find it in most larger supermarkets. Be sure to use a white granulated sweetener that has the same texture and weight as sugar.

We love hearing from you, submit any tips or tricks you have for this dish and we’ll review them and add some of them here. Just click here.
