Not all clingfilms are suitable for microwaving. Check the box first just to be safe.


this is an amzing quick pud, i have made it many times, the clingfilm has never caught fire like jen's comment above(scary!) i wl be making this as part of a trio of deserts for christmas dinner number 1, there will be 3 this year!


i had a disaster - i covered the ramekin in cling film and microwaved it for only 30seconds and it set the clingfilm on fire! i did this at school and there was smoke everywhere! do not do it with the clingfilm over the top!


WOW! This pudding was delicious! I made it for me and my boyfriend for Valentine's - I was slightly dubious about the microwave cooking but it worked a treat AND was super easy. Well done goodtoknow! :)
