Baked lemon curd syrup sponges:

  • In a mixing bowl, beat the butter, sugar, eggs and flour with an electric mixer until combined. Stir in the breadcrumbs and half the zests.
  • In a small bowl, mix the remaining zests and all the juice with the golden syrup and 1 tbsp brandy. Put 1 tbsp into each mould..
  • Divide the sponge mixture among the moulds and put 1 tsp lemon curd in the middle of each (the curd will merge into the sponge). Put the moulds on a baking tray and bake for 30 minutes until risen and golden.
  • Meanwhile, gently warm the custard and extra 1½ tbsp brandy in a pan. Turn out the puddings onto plates and drizzle over the remaining syrup. Serve with the boozy custard.
