Easy Ginger Sponge Pudding Recipe!

It's Thursday guys, which means it is almost the weekend woohoo! Today I am bringing you a recipe even I can make (the girl who manages to burn a pasta bake) and all you need is a few simple ingredients most of which you probably have laying around the house and a microwave. The recipe is for a gorgeous ginger sponge pudding, which was inspired by the video below:

You can follow the video above for a step by step guide on how to make the ginger sponge pudding or check it out via the recipe here on The Ideas Kitchen. The great thing about their website is for the recipes you can change the amount of people you want to create a recipe before and it gives you the exact amounts. 

Before baking my ginger sponge pudding, I took a quick trip to ASDA and purchased all of the ingredients (which are pictured above) for all of the ingredients the total was around £10. Most of the ingredients will keep so you are able to create this on multiple occasions as the recipe doesn't actually use that much of what is bought. The recipe is super easy to make and I think it took me around 10 minutes to prepare, 15 minutes cooking time, a couple minutes to cool and then pour on the custard and you're done. The only thing I changed from the recipe was I purchased cream and grated orange on top as I am not a massive custard fan and this is what the recipes suggests serving it with, oops.

Overall I am pretty impressed with how easy these were to create and actually turned out tasting pretty amazing and are a pretty quick and simple dessert to whip up (ha ha, get it?) if you're having guests over or even just fancy making a quick pudding after your evening meal.

Next I NEED to try The Ideas Kitchens stuffed peppers as they look INSANE.

I hope you enjoyed a little bit of a different post from me today, let me know if you want more food related posts, because I am totally okay with more baking!
