Make this fruity steamed pudding for a tasty and comforting dessert with an exotic twist.
Butter a 1·2 litre (2pt) pudding basin and line the base with a snug-fitting circle of nonstick baking paper. Have circles of pleated foil, buttered baking paper and string ready, as before.
For the topping, combine 75g (3oz) golden caster sugar, juice of 1 large lemon and pulp of 2 passion fruit in a bowl. Spoon into the basin.
For the sponge, beat the butter, golden syrup, self-raising flour, baking powder, golden caster sugar, eggs, pulp of 2 passion fruit, pinch salt and fine zest of 2 lemons together with electric beaters until smooth – about a minute.
Spoon into the basin, without mixing the batter and sauce. Smooth the top. Tie the buttered paper and foil on top and steam for 2 hours on a trivet, testing with a skewer, as before. Lift out and upturn the hot pudding and serve straight away.
