Rainy Day Pudding with Teapigs

I had planed on making some sort of jug cocktail using Lemon & Ginger teabags from Teapigs but the rain came down on us this weekend and scuppered our plans for a beach hut day.  The temperature dropped and we had to nurse a leaking kitchen roof all day so to cheer us up, I made a rainy day sponge pudding.  It did the job and put big smiles on our faces and our tummies were very happy too thank you very much.
