Every Flavour Puddings

140g butter
140g soft light brown sugar (use muscovado for the treacle or brandy ones)
140g self raising flour
2 large eggs (lightly beaten)

Put a muffin case into 6 (6oz) dariole moulds or large muffin tins
(I used the Silverwood 6 cup Mini Pudding Mould)

Preheat your oven to 160 degrees centigrade
Place a roasting tray on the middle shelf 1/3 full of cold water

Beat the butter and sugars together until light and creamy
Add each beaten egg with a spoonful of flour and stir well
Fold in the remaining flour
Depending on which flavour you choose, stir in a) see below
Then spoon b) into the bottom of the muffin cases, 2 teaspoonfuls into each one
Place the tins into the water bath and bake for 35-40 minutes until golden and springy
Let them cool for a few minutes in the tins
Tip out the puddings, remove the muffin papers and serve with cream

If you make too many, keep them in the fridge and reheat them 1 or 2 days later:
Put two in the microwave at a time and heat for 1 minute
