Spray the oven proof bowl and add a few spoons of your choice of jam or syrup
Cream butter and sugar. Beat inn eggs. Gradually add flour/baking powder. Do not mix or beat dough too much. Stir in 2-3 drops of vanilla essence. Add a little bit of water to make the consistency such that it falls off the spoon.
Pour dough over the jam/syrup. Spread the dough to form a dip in the middle of the bowl as it will rise more there than along the edges.
Normally we would then steam it in a large pan for 1.5 hours. Today we were peckish and needed quicker results. So we baked it at 160 celsius for 50 minutes.
