Small Man doesn’t like “bits” in his cakes, but he does love treacle, so I morphed Edith’s Economical Pudding into a Treacle Pudding for him.

In the process, we’ve made it even more economical!  I’d like to think Edith would be proud.  Here’s the reworked recipe:


  • 60g (2oz) unsalted butter, very soft
  • 70g (1/3 cup) vanilla sugar (or white sugar)
  • 1 large (59g) egg
  • 125g (½ cup) milk
  • 225g (1½ cups) self-raising flour
  • 3 teaspoons treacle


  • 150g (¾ cup) brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon (4 teaspoons) treacle
  • 250g (1 cup) water
  • 60g (2oz) unsalted butter
  • juice of half a lemon

I followed the same method as before, and baked the pudding for 40 minutes in a 170C fan-forced oven.  I’m not sure if it was a product of the slightly shorter baking time or the smaller casserole pot, or if the absence of dried fruit meant that the cake absorbed less liquid, but the finished dessert had a wonderful layer of sauce on the bottom.

Needless to say, Small Man was very happy!
