    2                    eggs
                         ***SIEVE TOGETHER***
  115      grams         self raising flour
      1/2  tsp           baking powder
    1      pinch         salt
    1      tsp           ground ginger

 Grease 4 x 5 floz pudding tins. Mix together the golden syrup, lemon, 
 breadcrumbs and ginger for the  topping and divide between the pudding tins. 
 Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add the beaten egg a  littl
 at a time, beating well between each addition. Fold in the dry ingredients to 
 make a soft dropping consistency.  (Add a  few drops of cold water but only if 
 necessary to make the consistency  right). Divide between the tins hollowing th
 centre slightly.  Bake at 160C/gas 3 for about 25 minutes until golden, well 
 risen and firm to touch.  Put all sauce ingredients into a pan and bring to the
 boil.  Simmer to  amalgamate the flavours and reduce slightly.  Turn out the 
 puddings on to serving plates and pour the sauce over and  around.  Serve with 
 vanilla custard.
