What do you do when a late night craving won’t go away? This is a tricky one as the other night I spent ages mentally throwing back the pros and cons to a naughty desert.
Deep down I knew I wanted a treacle sponge pudding with custard and I’ve stopped buying anything more than a fat free muller light yoghurt as everything else offers only a short window of opportunity to be eaten in our house.
So I decided it was best to hit my sweet tooth notes and syn properly with this recipe and saw it as a time to clear the fridge & shelves before the kitchen remodeling began. However, I took on more than I bargained for… weevils were crawling around in every one of my packets of flour, including unopened ones and had only one other option; oat pudding. At least the clearing took a dent in my shelves but will have to consider air tight containers.
And this pudding became a very moist, oaty recipe, discovered by mistake, beautifully resembling the bottom of an eve’s pudding and truly naughty. I don’t make things like this often at all and seldom buy butter and sugar, but if you bake cakes for people on occasion, you’re often left with things that need using up, so it’s definitely a one off treat.

I hope this recipe can fix your craving, but once in a while, of course?
