40g (1½ oz) light muscovado sugar

75g (2¾ oz) self raising flour

Here’s what you’ll need to do…

Use a tiny amount of the low fat spread to grease six castle pudding moulds or ramekins.

Put the remaining low-fat spread into a mixing bowl with the sugar, flour, cocoa powder, milk and vanilla extract. Crack in the egg and then beat with a wooden spoon for one minute until all the ingredients are combined.

Share the mixture between the six moulds or ramekins and then place a piece of greased foil on each one, wrapping it tightly around.

Stand the moulds or ramekins in a large lidded saucepan and add enough boiling water to come about one-third of the way up their sides. Cover and steam over a low heat for 25 minutes.

Run a kitchen knife around the pudding moulds or ramekins and invert to release them.

Serve with the crème fraÎche and strawberries before dusting with a little cocoa powder.

Enjoy!

Cook’s tip: Check the level of water from time to time to make sure that the saucepan doesn’t boil dry and top up if necessary.
