Fruit sponge type recipe - Make the night before.

Help - I need a recipe that I can do the night before its needed for a pudding (fruit sponge type), for a lunchtime main meal. I have a pitifully small oven and need all the space for the roast. So hence the cook in advance pud. Fruit on bottom, cake type top would be good. Thought I could get a Xmas pud from supermarket but none to be had. " Only at Xmas". (Self saucing no good because the sauce dries up when standing.)

Sorry coverdrive, not a recipe of the type that you asked for but some suggestions for alternatives. Firstly thought do you have access to a slowcooker/Crock-pot? If so I suggest that you use it to either make, then reheat a Christmas/Fruit Pudding or alternatively use it to make a self-saucing pudding. Here's a recipe that you might like to try:-

I haven't tried the pudding above however I do recall seeing it being made on TV and I also recall that some posters here on the Recipe MB did try the recipe and gave positive feedback re the pudding.

Hope that helps. :-))

Ah. Just what I need. I will haul the slow cooker out from the garage (having earthquake repairs done so it is a storage space for now) and do that. Thanks heaps!

You're most welcome coverdrive.
Hope your luncheon goes well and your earthquake repairs too. We are still waiting and not likely to have definite decisions let alone actual repairs/rebuild before the 5th anniversary in September. :-))
