50g / 2oz shredded suet (beef or vegetarian)
50g / 2oz caster sugar
5ml / 1 tsp vanilla extract
90ml / 6 tabsp milk
- Thoroughly grease a 1.25 litre / 2 ¼ pint pudding basin. Pour in the syrup until it covers the base.

Spoon carefully over the syrup in the basin. Cook, uncovered, on FULL for 4-4½ mins until the pudding has risen to each the top of the basin. Allow to stand for two minutes.
