Vegan Treacle Sponge Recipe

How to Make a Vegan Treacle Sponge

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180°C (170°C fan). Grease 1 l ovenproof dish and set aside.

Step 2

In a medium bowl, combine the Lyle’s Golden Syrup, lemon juice and lemon zest. Pour this mixture over the bottom of the greased ovenproof dish and set aside.

Step 3

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together, for about 2 minutes. Add the salt and vegan yoghurt and mix again to combine.

Step 4

Add the flour and gently fold it into the batter. Pour the vegan milk of choice and stir all the ingredients together.

Step 5

Pour the batter into the baking dish (on top of the Lyles Golden Syrup and lemon mixture). Use a wet spoon or spatula to spread the batter and smooth it on top.

Step 6

Bake for 35-40 minutes, until risen and golden brown. Serve with custard or ice cream.
