Make this fruity steamed pudding for a tasty and comforting dessert with an exotic twist.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
