10 Minute Vegan Steamed Pudding

This is a 10 minute triumph that simply must be paired with my vegan custard recipe. I got the recipe from a website called veganuniversity.org and adapted the method to ensure a successful pudding each time. Soft sponge soaked in golden syrup topped with vanilla custard – yum!  You can have your pudding and eat it!


110 grams self raising flour

50 grams sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

100ml water

60ml vegetable oil

1 tablespoon golden syrup


Mix together the dry ingredients in a 18cm Pyrex bowl with a fork.  Incase you don’t have one, I have also made this in a 15.5cm microwaveable plastic bowl so it is obviously quite an adaptable recipe.

Add the water bit by bit, mixing and making sure all the flour is incorporated to form a thick batter.  Next add the oil a bit at a time, stirring constantly.  You can finish off by whisking with a fork. You should end up with the batter in the middle and a rim of oil.  This is fine.

Next dollop the golden syrup in the middle, it should sink to the bottom.  You may need to give the bowl a shake.

Cover the bowl in cling film and microwave on high for 4 minutes.

Leave to stand for a few minutes before turning out onto a plate. It might take a bit of time for the pudding to come unstuck but just be patient. Serve with cream or custard whilst it is still steaming hot!

  • I just made this and it was amazing. I was really fancying a childhood Sunday pudding and so thank you for this super quick and speedy vegan version. I halved the recipe and made it in a Pyrex jug with baking parchment tied over the top with string (like a mug cake). I also made Bird’s custard with oat milk to go with it.
