Husband wants stodge!

It’s not often Hubby likes a dessert, but being a lover of all things custard, one of my fatless and sugarless microwave stodges goes down a treat. And as we purchased some maple syrup for our pancakes, well, he’s drooling a bit at the worktop……………….

Ingredients: Serves 1 generously or 2 adequately.
1 heaped tablespoon flour
1 egg
sultanas to suit (about a spoonful: we didn’t use very many today as he was having maple syrup too)

Put ingredients into a cup or mug, mix well.
Cook in microwave for one minute (should be well risen, soft and springy to touch and shrinking from the sides).
Serve with topping of your choice.

This is what it looks like when tipped out of the cup/mug (light and aerated)
Add custard (left) then maple syrup (right)

All pictures taken with my phone today.

1. If you want to make it for 3 or 4, double the quantities and use a larger bowl (ie, 1 pint pyrex dish).

2. You can make a treacle pudding by putting golden syrup on the bottom of a dish/mug and pouring the mix on top, or a chocolate one adding a spoonful of instant chocolate powder. No sugar is required because the fruit/treacle/chocolate provides the sweetness.

3. This does not keep unless you want to build your own wall of China in which case leave it for 24 hours as it goes rock solid!


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    That looks so tasty you have tempted me we will have to try that. The only thing that worries me is that you said “This does not keep unless you want to build your own wall of China in which case leave it for 24 hours as it goes rock solid!” Anyway I am going to try it, God help our tummies 😁 as my mum would of said. πŸ’œ

  5. Thanks for sharing that great and easy to do recipe AND the warning about concrete if it’s left. πŸ™‚ You had asked, in the recent past, about the ‘pancake in a cup’ thing I bought. I finally cooked one of them (the blueberry and maple one). It was pretty darned good, but I undercooked it, so it was more like your pudding there than an actual pancake consistency. But I’ll get more of them, as that’s my kind of food…no fuss, no muss and straight on to eating! πŸ˜€
