JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

A recipe to share

The cooler weather is finally here in North Queensland and I find myself cooking comfort food.  Warming hot pots and puddings are on the menu and I have been cooking things like Oxtail Stew, Osso Bucco, Chocolate Lava Cakes and today, Passionfruit and lemon steamed pudding.  This was so delicious that I thought I should share the recipe.  We have lots of passionfruit and lemons at the moment so this was just the thing to use up a few.

PASSIONFRUIT AND LEMON STEAMED PUDDING

For the Topping
75 g caster sugar
juice from 1 lemon
pulp from 2 passionfruit

For the Sponge
175g butter, very soft
1 tbsp golden syrup
175g SR Flour
1 tsp baking powder
175g caster sugar
3 large eggs
pulp from 2 passionfruit
pinch salt
zest of 2 lemons

Method
For the topping, combine ingredients and divide the mixture evenly into the bottom of 6 silicon muffin cases.
For the sponge, beat all ingredients together until smooth - about a minute.  Spoon the mixture on top of the topping in the muffin cases.  Do not mix together.  Smooth the top.

Place the muffin cases into a steamer and steam for 40 minutes.

(This can be made as one large pudding and steamed for 2 hours)

Serve straight away with either cream or ice-cream.

Steaming away!

The finished puddings

The topping that went into the bottom of the muffin cases becomes the topping for these little puddings.

I am lucky enough to own a Chefs Toolbox Wok and Steamer that is perfect for this recipe.  The silicon Muffin cases are also from Chefs Toolbox.  You can purchase them here.
