Saw this one day while browsing desserts (everyone fancied something new). Made it exactly as it says, and it came out perfectly (My microwave is only 600W i think). Made for family and some friends, topped with golden syrup/toffee sauce, and cream/custard... Everyone prefers a different combination :3 Love this recipe I've made it countless times since I found it, thanks.

My pudding just would not cook in the middle in the microwave. Next time I will bake it on the oven. A very good stand by recipe.

I originally made this pudding following the method but found it rather rubbery. So the next time I creamed the butter and sugar and cooked it in the oven and it had a nice texture I also made some toffee sauce to go with it as recommended in the serving suggestion but found it far too sweet. So the third time I made this pudding I served it with custard which was perfect and the only way in future that I will serve this pudding.

don't know what I did wrong but turned out like banana bread pudding, but tasted fabulous

Baked this in a conventional oven at GM4 - is about 1 hour the correct length of time? Very yummy anyway.

Used equuivalent amount of sweetner ( as diabetic) and Maple flavouring to compensate for no Muscovado taste. A new favourite
