Recipe: Golden Winter Pudding

New Zealand School of Food & Wine

This is a good base recipe for puddings making good use of the golden syrup that remains a staple of the New Zealand kitchen.

Delicious as is, the pudding is also receptive to additional flavours such as lemon rind or raisins and spices like ginger or cinnamon. Make it in a family-sized dish or in individual ramekins to give everyone their own personal pud.

Ingredients

75 g Butter, plus extra for greasing
75 g Sugar
75 g Self raising flour
1 Egg
1 Tbsp Milk
100 g Golden syrup

Directions

Lightly grease a mould, a small pudding basin, or 4 ramekins with a little butter. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and fold in the flour and milk. Pour the golden syrup into the bottom of the pudding basin or mould.
Carefully spoon the pudding batter on top of the golden syrup, spreading the mixture evenly. Cover and seal the top of the pudding basin with baking paper tied into place with string (or you can use tin foil).
Place the pudding basin in a large pot of simmering water. Ensure the water comes halfway up the side of the basin, put the lid on and steam for 30-40 minutes. If you are using ramekins, heat an oven to 160C and place the ramekins in a deep oven tray. Pour warm water around them so that it comes halfway up the ramekins and bake for 20 minutes.
Serve with vanilla bean ice cream and whipped cream.

Make a change
Lemon golden pudding: Grate the rind of one small lemon and add to the batter with the milk and flour.
Ginger golden pudding: Add 1 tsp of ground ginger with the flour and milk.
Nutty golden pudding: Add chopped walnuts to the bottom of the greased mould before you pour in the golden syrup.

ANNOYED! Cars Parked on Half the Road And Half on Footpaths

Matt from Henderson

To Neighbourly. When I do my deliveries either my paper run or my circulars run around in West Auckland, I find the odd car or cars at times, half parked on footpaths and on the side of the road?

When I do my deliveries either my paper run or my circulars run around in West Auckland, I find the odd car or cars at times, half parked on footpaths and on the side of the road? I don't know if this is a legal or illegal thing to do in this country. Here is a pic from the UK, just to give you an example. I am not just doing this post for myself as such but for also people who do Courier deliveries around West Auckland also. What do others think? Are we as NZer's allowed to do this as part of everyday parking? Is there no such thing as parking on the road now in this day of age? Or is this just lazy parking?
