I am a bit obsessed with spreadsheets - they are great fun! sad or what!! lol
So I decided to cost a home-made recipe I found on the net somewhere (cant for the life of me remember where!)
2 oz sugar
2 oz marg
2 oz flour
1 oz milk
1 tablespoon golden syrup
Mix the sponge mix, put in microwave bowl, pour the syrup over, cover with clingfilm and cook in the microwave for 3 mins - this made a lovely quick easy pudding for the three of us.
On todays prices at Asda on my supermarket it came to 34.13p - add a packet of instant custard for 10p (that was from Sainsburys) and the whole pud cost less that 15p per portion.
If you had bought one of those tins steamed puddings it would have cost over 3 times as much and I doubt if it would have done 2 of us never mind 3........
Oh I do like to be beside the seaside
