I have a recipe for a self-saucing pudding that separates into a sponge top with a custard layer beneath, rather like Lemon Surprise Pudding. It calls for one tablespoon of vanilla.
For an idea of the size of the recipe, it starts:
1 cup flour 2 tablespoons cocoa powder 1/2 cup sugar
This is surely not ground vanilla pods or vanilla extract, as so much would be overpowering.
Is there something similar in the English pantry that is similar, or can someone provide an equivalent amount of vanilla extract?
