Grease a 900ml pudding basin with butter (or use individual ramekins, if you prefer).

Spoon 30ml golden syrup into the bottom of the bowl and top with 125ml fresh or frozen and thawed blueberries.

Beat the butter and castor sugar together. Stir in the vanilla essence then add the lightly beaten eggs, a little at a time. Fold in the self- raising flour and 15-30ml milk, to form a dropping consistency.

Spoon the batter onto the blueberries. Cover the bowl with pleated baking paper and secure with string.

Steam in a large saucepan of boiling water for one hour (or 25 minutes for individual puddings) with the lid on. Add more water if necessary. Invert onto a serving plate or into individual bowls, and serve warm with extra berries and custard.

Tip of the day

White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
