I added some ground ginger and put a couple of tablespoons of maple syrup in the bottom of the bowl before adding the mixture. The sponge comes out a bit dry, but some added maple syrup at the end makes it a bit more pleasingly soggy.

I put mandarin orange segments in the bottom and ate it with a spoonful of natural yoghurt :-)

I replaced a small amount of the flour with cocoa and it was delicious with custard

I changed the recipe. I added 3 tablespoons of golden syrup to the bowl and then put on your ingredients. LUVELY
