  • Spoon evenly into the 4 tubs and cover each one loosely with cling film and make a small incision in the film.
  • Set the microwave to full power and cook for 3 minutes.
  • Once cooked remove carefully as they will be really hot and leave to stand for 2 minutes to set.

  • If you’re not eating immediately leave the cling film over to stop the sponges drying out.
